BAFTA is hosting a major Behind The Screens exhibition where you can take a look at costumes, models, scripts and more from some of your fave TV shows and films, including that pink Molly Goddard dress worn by Villanelle in Killing Eve, hair and make-up design for The Favourite and research and prep that Chiwetel Ejiofor undertook for 12 Years A Slave. The Natural History Museum is home to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year show, with awarded images selected from almost 50,000 entries and it showcases the beauty and diversity of the natural world, with everything from Canadian racoons to Japanese long-tailed tits to African cheetahs depicted in the photographs.
The annual orchid festival is back at Kew and for the first time the theme is Indonesia. As an archipelago of more than 17,504 islands, Indonesia is incredibly biodiverse, with tropical rainforests, active volcanoes and over 4,000 species of orchid and you can get a little taste of this inside the Princess of Wales Conservatory.
And if you’ve not gone on one of the Hidden London tours of abandoned tube stations, you can now experience it above ground at the Hidden London exhibition at the London Transport Museum. The exhibition will feature the largest number of archive photos, film posters, objects, tiles and diagrams from disused stations in one location, and there’ll also be immersive elements like a recreation of Churchill’s dining room at Down Street station and the ticket office from Aldwych station, complete with original 1930s ticket booth and tiles.
