Plenty of exciting things have opened in London this week – here is Love London Love Culture’s guide to the best of the rest!
1. Exhibitionism, Saatchi Gallery: this cool and immersive exhibition about the Rolling Stones is definitely a must-see for any fans of the band. Even if you aren’t there is still plenty to fascinate and entertain as Love London Love Culture found. But if you are planning on making a trip, highly recommend that you book in advance!

2. The Caretaker, Old Vic Theatre: Timothy Spall returns to the stage in this new production of Harold Pinter’s play. Critics mainly enjoyed this new version directed by Matthew Warchus as you can tell. The show is booking until the 14th May.

3. X, Royal Court Theatre: this strange and bewildering new play from Alistair McDowall, has left some critics confused and lost for words – but why not judge for yourself and head to the Royal Court?
4. Dutch Flowers, National Gallery: to celebrate the beginning of Spring, the National Gallery launched a new display that focused on the rise of Dutch flower painting and features some spectacular displays of flowers. Entry to the exhibition is free and runs until August! (Love London Love Culture’s full review is available to read here)
5. Russian Dolls, King’s Head Theatre: a powerful piece of drama that comments on the state of Britain today through the friendship of two unlikely characters is beautifully brought to life at the King’s Head Theatre. Truly worth a watch.
