Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you… down at New Wimbledon Theatre, that’s where! This stage adaptation sees the gang faced with one of their toughest mysteries yet. “What is it Scoob?” I hear you ask.

 All My Sons

What to expect: a beautiful setting for a truly great play

It’s Miller time! With the sold-out A View From the Bridge wowing critics and audiences alike, and The Crucible set to open at the Old Vic next month, take advantage of the fair weather and head to Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre to catch the play commonly regarded as Miller’s greatest.

 In The Heights

What to expect: an electrically-charged shows

In The Heights won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 2008, yet it’s taken it this long to make its London debut. The show examines the vibrant Manhattan community of Washington Heights, as the area struggles with change: which traditions to keep and which to leave behind. The score is bursting with Latin and hip-hop themes, and has enough energy to inspire even the most lethargic audience member!

In The Heights continues at the Southwark Playhouse until 7th June. Tickets from £18, available here.

 

 ArcelorMittal Orbit

What to expect: hawking around at the iconic sculpture

This half term the ArcelorMittal Orbit has new mascots! A group of hawks will be calling the eye-catching sculpture at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park home for the week, keeping it clear of pesky pigeons and other birds. If you head along then as well as climbing the sculpture you can take part in the competition to name the hawks, and be in with the chance of adopting them for a year and receiving a soft toy of the mascots!

The hawks will be at the ArcelorMittal Orbit from 24th May until 1st June. The sculpture is open daily from 10am – 6pm, with tickets from £7, available here.
