Enjoying London shows this festive season
Christmas is now looming large on the horizon and you might be looking forward to taking some time off work and generally relaxing. However, if you’re not careful, the festive season can quickly turn into a marathon of cooking, cleaning and entertaining. If you really want to unwind in the run-up to December 25th, or after the celebrations are over, it’s worth booking luxury hotels in London. Here at The Landmark London hotel, we’ll look after you in fine style.
While you’re in the capital, why not check out one or two of the shows on offer? Whether you’re travelling to London for a romantic weekend with your partner or you’re taking a family trip with your kids, there’s no shortage of options.
Perfect for youngsters
One show that’s ideal for children is Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. This is being shown at the Polka Theatre until February 15th next year. An adaptation of the Lewis Carroll classic, Simon Reade’s production includes encounters with Cheshire cats and mad march hares, among other characters.
For something a littlemore high-octane, Disney on Ice: Dare to Dream is a must-see. Performances of the show are being staged at the O2 from December 26th until January 5th. This mesmerising extravaganza is a real case of classic meets contemporary. Characters include Rapunzel, Tiana, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and of course Prince Charming.
For the grownups
On the other hand, if you’re enjoying a weekend away with your other half, perhaps Monty Python’s Spamalot would fit the bill. This musical, which has been lovingly ripped off from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, is the work of comedian and Monty Python star Eric Idle. He was helped in the score by John Du Prez. You can catch the performances at the Playhouse Theatre until February 8th next year.
Another light-hearted show that’s well worth checking out is Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense. By Robert and David Goodale, this theatrical creation is based on P G Wodehouse’s Jeeves and Wooster and it sees Bertie Wooster unwittingly called on to play the role of matchmaker. It is showing at the Duke of York’s Theatre until March 8th next year.
If serious theatre is more your style, then it might be worth booking tickets to see the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. Based on the novel by Mark Haddon and adapted for the stage by Simon Stephens, it centres on a 15-year-old autistic boy named Christopher, whose world is turned upside down following the death of a neighbour’s dog. It is showing at the Apollo Theatre until October next year.
