Hannele’s pick: Nasty Women Exhibition
May I invite all folks to experience a range of contemporary feminist artwork in terms of celebrating International Women’s Day. Nasty Women is a global art movement which started in New York and stands for equality and women’s rights. The Nasty Women Exhibition, by Creative Debuts, includes film, photography, fine art, sculpture and much more. Ladies, let’s get empowered!
Nasty Women Exhibition, 74 Rivington Street, London, EC2A 3AY. Event: 8 March 2018 – 10 March 2018, 7:00 PM – 11:00 PM. Exhibition: 8 March 2018 – 30 March 2018.
Oula’s pick: Tomorrow’s Warriors Female Collective
Tomorrow’s Warriors, since its launching in 1991, has been highly influential in providing education and a platform for young musicians hoping to pursue a career in jazz. In 2011, they began separate development sessions for female musicians to address inequality in the music industry. The programme has gone on to do great things with their award-winning alumni band NÉRIJA as a recent example.
Tomorrow’s Warriors Female Collective is performing in Southbank Centre as part of the Women of the World festival. Definitely a must go for all fans of jazz and music.
Tomorrow’s Warriors Female Collective
Central Bar Foyer, Level 2, Royal Festival Hall, Su 11.3.2018, 6:00 pm
Veera’s pick: Illuminating India at the Science Museum
In March I recommend to visit Science Museum’s India themed exhibition. India is probably one of the most interesting and colourful cultures in the World. Last year the country celebrated their 70 years of independence, and therefore Indian art, cinema, culture and science has been praised in the UK.
There is an open exhibition in the Science Museum, and it is about different scientific achievements in India during the past 5000 years. The exhibition is free and it is open until 31 March 2018.
Illuminating India at the Science Museum,
Exhibition Road London, SW7 2DD, open daily 10.00-18.00 until 31.3.2018. Admission free.
Keren’s pick: Orchid festival at Kew Gardens
Kew Gardens’ celebration of the orchid returns for its 23rd year, this time with a focus on the plantlife of Thailand. Kew Royal Botanical Gardens is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with one of the world’s largest collections of plants. Aesthetics and nature are close to me and here you will get pretty close to native wildlife. There are guided walking tours taking place daily in the Kew gardens.
Orchid Festival at Kew Gardens
Royal Botanic Gardens, London, TW9 3AB. Until March 11. Tickets from £15.
Roxy’s pick: Aladdin The Musical
London is very famous for its musicals, and the performances keep visitors and locals interested year after year. One of my must-see choices at the moment is Aladdin, which is based on the beloved Disney film of the same name. In this version, Aladdin is played by Matthew Croke, and Jasmine by Jade Ewen. The audience is able to experience “a whole new world”, where the music, the set, and the professional work of the actors are mixed into magic.
Aladdin The Musical
Prince Edward Theatre, Old Compton St, W1D 4HS,
Performance Times: Monday – Saturday 7.30pm, Thursday & Saturday 2.30pm. Admission vary.
