      Strange and Familiar: Britain as Revealed by International Photographers

      Event: Winifred Knights at Dulwich Picture Gallery

      Location: Dulwich Picture Gallery, SE21

      The Dulwich Picture Gallery is hosting the first retrospective of early 20th-century modernist artist Winifred Knights, reuniting her paintings for the first time.

      Winifred Knights’s most famous picture, The Deluge, was painted in 1920 when she was just 21 years old, and it won the Prix de Rome, despite being submitted unfinished. The painting of a biblical scene of panic as women flee The Flood usually hangs in Tate Britain, although it has been lent to the Dulwich Art Gallery for this exhibition. It is often mistaken for a Stanley Spencer.

      Event: Serpentine Pavilion and Summer Houses 2016

      Location: Serpentine Gallery, W2

      A sloping wall of giant ice cubes forms the 2016 Serpentine Pavilion by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels.

      Not real ice cubes, you understand, they are made from hollowed out fibreglass bricks, piled up and up into a soaring sculpture, described as an “unzipped wall”. Ingels’s design promises to be “modular yet sculptural, both transparent and opaque, both solid box and blob”.

      Event: Sir Alan Parker's Bugsy Malone 2016

      Location: Lyric Hammersmith, W6

      Custard pies and splurge guns at the ready as Sir Alan Parker’s gangster musical Bugsy Malone is back on the London stage.

      The children’s musical set in prohibition-era New York is play-acting at its best, with a young gangster cast that thrills with the fun of its make-believe warfare.

      Based on the 1976 film that starred a very young Jodie Foster, the musical tells how penniless boxing promoter Bugsy falls for the nightclub singer Blousey Brown, who performs at mafia boss Fat Sam’s Grand Slam speakeasy.

      Event: Engineering the World: Ove Arup and the Philosophy of Total Design

      Location: V&A Museum, SW7

      The V&A is celebrating the innovative design engineer Ove Arup whose work spanned much of the 20th century and included some of the greatest engineering feats of the era.

      Ove Arup worked on projects from London Zoo’s beautiful curved Penguin Pool in the 1930s and the Mulberry Harbour fenders — a significant element in the success of the Normandy Landings during the Second World War — to Sydney Opera House in the 1950s-1960s.
