You may have undoubtedly heard the hype surrounding the V&As new exhibition this month, David Bowie is. The new exhibition is the biggest selling ticketed event for the V&A, and with many celebrity names coming along for the VIP evening, including Tilda Swinton and Christopher Kane, its sure to be an exhibition worth seeing.
The exhibition is the first of its kind to look at David Bowie’s extraordinary life in full. It features costumes, instruments and hand written lyrics. If you’re a Bowie fan, this is a definite must! However, even if you do book now, you won’t be able to go to the exhibition till July due to the huge demand for tickets!
Tiger Territory: London Zoo
A brand new tiger enclosure has just opened at London zoo which cost 3.6 million to build! The new enclosure aims to create a setting as natural as possible for the new Sumatran Tigers.

If you wanted something unique and interesting to do for summer then why not try “Zoo Lates”. This is held over a couple of Friday nights in June and July in which the zoo opens from 6-10 and people can come in and party with the animals! The zoo provides a mask or hat, drink of arrivals and entrance to the zoo! This looks like a great evening out and at the moment theres an offer for 50% off the normal £25 tickets. Get your claws in quick!

Tickets are only £5 and the race is held at the Spitalfields City Farm, close to the Spitalfields market so you can make a day of it!
