Fela! Musical:: 6th November- 4th December 2010
Having seen this on Broadway in New York this summer, I can’t recommend Fela! enough. Highly entertaining and a befitting show for an absolute cultural legend. Tickets via The National Theatre
Hendrix in Britain Exhibition:: Until 7th Nov
Taking place @ The Handel House Museum, this exhibition marks the 40th anniversary of the god-like guitarist and singer songwriter Jimi Hendrix. The focus is on the last four yeas of his life, which Hendrix spent as a London resident. Looking forward to checking this out soon.
