Hole at Royal Court Theatre
This explosive début from Ellie Kendrick explores what it means to be a woman through the lens of Greek myth and er, particle physics. Taking you on a journey through the stories of women throughout history, the show does not just entertain but empowers. Read our interview with set designer for the show, Cécile Trémolière, here.

Christmas at the Phoenix Garden
Musical theatre, cabaret, comedy and drag will all feature in a new “secret” arts theatre festival in London with a line-up including Louise Dearman, Mark Watson, Mat Ricardo and Ivy Paige, in order to fund the growth of the Phoenix Garden into an accessible creative hub hosting events with a community focus.
 
Christmas at the Phoenix Garden, 6 – 16 December, The Phoenix Garden, 21 Stacey St, London WC2H 8DG
 
Skepta at Printworks
If you can dig yourself up a ticket, you unequivocally should run, not walk, to Skepta’s Printworks show this weekend. Arguably one the most influential British figureheads of recent times, his appearances at Printworks this week come 2 years after his historic Ally Pally show and promise an electric performance from the man himself.

Bumper Cars on Ice at Elephant and Castle
When dreaming of a truly wintery Christmas, many imagine gliding along a romantic frozen lake under a starry December night sky… but some of us desire something with a bit more ‘oomph’, literally. Pack some punch into the festive season at the Elephant and Castle Ice Rink, where you can get behind the wheel of a bumper car and release a little road rage. When you’ve worked up an appetite, you can indulge in some delicious street food from an array of international cuisines. Check out more places to ice skate here.

The ice rink is open until 6 January at Castle Square, 40 Elephant Rd, London SE17 1AY
 
We Live in an Ocean of Air at Saatchi Gallery
We Live in an Ocean of Air is a multisensory virtual reality installation that brings together art, science and technology, literally showing us our fundamental connections with the natural world. The immersive experience explores the invisible connection between plants and humans through breath, allowing the viewer to interact with an entire ecosystem around a giant sequoia tree. Incorporating breath sensors, heart rate monitors, binaural sound, scent dispersal systems and wind machines, We Live in an Ocean of Air will be a truly new experience.
