Happy New Year!

Let's hope 2022 is a brighter year and we can get out and about with friends and family. Here are some ideas to get you going in January.


There are a few superb ongoing exhibitions! Frans Hals: the Male Portrait at the Wallace Collection explores the importance of portraiture in the 1600s and includes the 'Laughing Cavalier'.

Meanwhile, there is a highly recommended exhibition covering the royal cousins Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots at the British Library.
