Carols By Candlelight 2018 in Westminster

What better way to get into the festive spirit the weekend before Christmas than by heading to Carols By Candelight at Central Hall in Westminster. A sublime concert of carols and seasonal classics, this evening is staged in full 18th Century costume and in a beautifully evocative candle-lit style setting. Expect to hear songs including Good King Wenceslas, Once in Royal David’s City, O Come All Ye Faithful and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing. There will also be readings from Dickens and the Scriptures by special guest Peter Davison. Head along to watch the amazing Mozart Festival Chorus and Mozart Festival Orchestra so what they do best.

Open all-day through to the evening, this is the perfect outing for the family or romantic evening for you and a loved one.

Seussical The Musical in Southwark

The fantastic world of Dr. Seuss comes to life on the stage at Southwark Playhouse until 29th December. This larger than life musical extravaganza brimming with fun and excitement is for “thinkers” of all ages. Join the mischievous Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz and a host of other much-loved characters on a magical, madcap adventure from the Jungle of Nool, to the Circus McGurkus, to the tiniest planet in the sky, Whoville. Co-created by Monty Python’s Eric Idle, this raucous and ultimately touching story by Tony Award winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty is a feel-good musical bonanza which dares us to think big.

Rumpelstiltskin on Southbank

Described as an absolute must-see, the UK premiere of the retelling of the beloved family fairy tale, Rumpelstiltskin, comes to life at Queen Elizabeth Hall in the Southbank Centre. Reimagined with lashings of magical mayhem, rocking music and supreme silliness, this groundbreaking theatrical spectacle is anything but traditional. Underneath its lavish exterior lies to the moral of the show – a lesson for all on the price of greed and revenge, and how love triumphs over hate. Australia singer and cabaret legend Paul Capsis stars as a shape-shifting imp whose thirst for vengeance may well do him. This is the perfect show for a family seeking something delightfully different this winter. Only a very short bus ride from our Kennington office, drop in if you’re keen to find out more about properties to rent or properties to buy in the area.

Circus 1903 on Southbank

Fresh from the Paris Theatre in Las Vegas, Circus 1903 visits London for its European premiere. The show includes sensational life-sized elephants stunningly created by puppeteers from War Horse, putting elephants back in the ring as never before. It also boasts a huge cast of jaw-dropping and dangerous acts from all corners of globe including acrobats, contortionists, jugglers, trapeze and high-wire performers who captivate and transport audiences of all ages to the golden age of the circus.
