Exhibition: The Rolling Stones: Exhibitionism

Fans of British music legends, The Rolling Stones, must catch this exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery with over 5,000 personal effects, photographs, films, posters, stage costumes, guitars, diaries and letters, and more Stones artefacts from the band’s 50 year reign as icons of British music. Saatchi Gallery from 5-30 April 2016

The Feast of St George

With a Shakespearean theme to mark 400 years since the death of William Shakespeare, the Mayor of London's party in honour of England’s patron saint, St George, sees Trafalgar Square decorated in red and white on Saturday 23rd April, with free themed activities including live music, family games, dance and storytelling. Plus, watch celebrity chefs give live cookery demonstrations and sample traditional English fare from the food stalls, inspired by St George’s Day’s 13th-century origins as a national day of feasting. You’ll get there faster with Stansted Express, so you can really get the most out of your trip! The train is the fastest and most comfortable way to get between the airport and central London - quicker than coach or car - and the train station at the airport is directly under the airport terminal, just a 2 minute walk from International Arrivals.
