What says Christmas more than a heart-warming festive film? Join us for a Festive Film & Fizz experience during November and December as we screen romantic comedies, fantasies and other much-loved Christmas classics. Each film is shown in our luxurious private cinema and comes – of course – with a sparkling glass of Champagne. A three-course dinner or brunch follows the film, making Film & Fizz the ultimate Christmas treat.
Santa will be visiting the London Transport Museum throughout December! Visit him in his secret hideaway, full of twinkling lights and comfy seats, or see if you can track him down in one of the heritage vehicles in the Museum for a super Santa selfie.
You can also take part in family activities including crafts and sing-along sessions.
The mouth is a mirror of mind and mood. Beyond this, it is a gateway to a remarkable microbiome that shapes many of our sensory experiences, affecting self-esteem and influencing our quality of life.
This exhibition in the Arcade at Bush House is the culmination of the Arts in Dentistry Innovation Programme – an experimental arts-based approach that has brought new perspectives to the Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences’ aim to understand disease, enhance health and restore function.
Don’t miss the lighting of the world’s most famous Christmas tree, which takes place in Trafalgar Square on 5 December 2019 at 6pm. The 25-metre high tree is a gift from the people of Norway to London, in thanks for Britain’s support in World War II. This historic tradition has happened every year since 1947 and signals the countdown to Christmas in London.
The Lost Girl is a new immersive film-based installation at King’s College London. Created by artist and King’s academic Kate McMillan (Department of Culture, Media & Creative Industries within the Faculty of Arts & Humanities), the project explores various research interests including climate change and the Anthropocene, a proposed geological epoch dating from the commencement of significant human impact on Earth's geology and ecosystems, including, but not limited to, anthropogenic climate change. The project also explores the role of creativity in forming memory and the consequences of neglecting female histories.
Using the DH Lawrence book of the same name as a starting point, the film depicts the experience of a fictional cave-dwelling girl living on the coast of England. Bereft of other people, the film narrates the experiences of this character seemingly alone in a dystopian future, set within a future-time which suggests the decimation of civilisation as we know it. Without language and prior knowledge, the young woman must make sense of her existence only through the debris washed up from the ocean to form meaning and language.
This is an unmissable exhibition coming to the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square. Come face-to-face with Artemisia and her paintings in the first major exhibition of her work in the UK.
At a time when women artists were not easily accepted, Artemisia Gentileschi was exceptional. She enjoyed a long and successful career as a painter, spanning more than 40 years, and she was the first woman to gain membership to the artists’ academy – the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno – in Florence.
