The Book of Mormon
Prince of Wales Theatre / Until 2nd March 2019
This gloriously silly production will provide the ideal after-dinner show after dining at any of the many restaurants and bars in Shoreditch. Written by the creators of South Park, it’s currently in its final run in London before closing in March. Be sure to catch it before it’s gone!
Good Grief, Charlie Brown!
Somerset House / Until 3rd March 2019
Celebrating the artwork of the famous comic strip, this exhibition takes a very human approach to the source material, exploring how it showcased the human condition – and unveiling the ways in which comics are often overlooked as an art form.
Time Out 50: 50 Years, 50 Covers
Museum of Brands / Until 3rd March 2019
Iconic publication Time Out has just celebrated its 50th birthday, and this exhibition examines the fifty covers which best showcase the eras during which the magazine has thrived. It’s a great way of tracing cultural history, and a fantastic combination of art and design for guests at our boutique hotels in Shoreditch to discover.

WOW: Women of the World Festival

Cats on the Page
British Library / Until 17th March 2019
Felines have always been a fixture of literature, and this exhibition explores the images and depictions which have helped shape how we view cats in everyday life and art. You don’t have to be a cat fan to appreciate the exhibit, but it certainly helps.
Gielgud Theatre / Until 30th March 2019
This performance of the famous Stephen Sondheim musical comedy is continuing its London run to packed-out audiences, so if you’re staying at our boutique hotels in Shoreditch and want to make sure you get a seat, be sure to buy tickets in advance.
