Your guide to March
Stepping into spring like…
Spring = brighter days, flowers in bloom and some bloomin’ good events. We’ve got our March agendas nailed (including time for mum) with the best goings-on in the UK this month and we’re sharing our faves with you. Read on to see what’s in store.
Whether you’re celebrating her or yourself, afternoon tea is always a failsafe win for Mother’s Day. Devour your scones and sarnies with an added dose of luxury at The Oakley Court in Windsor. They’re offering a super-spesh tea in their Drawing Room, where you’ll be treated to some stunning riverside views, too.
Marking 70 years of independence in India, The Science Museum’s latest season is a real two-parter. Illuminating India will showcase two major exhibitions: 5000 Years of Science and Innovation and Photography 1857–2017, offering a rare and candid snapshot into life in India. We’ll be heading to both.
If you live for fashion and are partial to a bit of history, you’ll want to hotfoot your Mary Jane’s down to the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court Palace for their new Embellishment in Fashion exhibition. An ode to all things embroidery, this seriously stylish display will showcase how the fashion elite’s penchant for embellishment has changed over the decades. Booking is essential, so you better hurry.
For something a little bit stronger, get yourself down to Reverend JW Simpson for their Spirited Sermons cocktail masterclass – St Patrick’s Day edition. Reverend will be praising and preaching about some of the world’s oldest and most fascinating spirits, offering delicious takes on classic tipples before inviting guests to try their hand at shaking them to life. There’ll also be some fab Irish-inspired cocktails and a tasting of Ireland’s most iconic whiskey. Time to don your best green threads.
For a spellbinding evening, head to The Victoria Theatre in Halifax where the Russian State Ballet will be bringing Tchaikovsky’s magical Swan Lake to life. There’ll be two showings of this very special rendition, which received glowing reviews since beginning its UK tour.
To coincide with the China’s First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors Exhibition at Liverpool World Museum, Culture Liverpool is proud to present a complementary display of cutting edge contemporary art. The artists included cover a range of themes like consumerism, technology and connectivity, installed throughout St George’s Hall. 19 works, never exhibited in their entirety will punctuate the gallery spaces hidden in the vaults of the hall. A very special exhibit indeed.
