Picasso's portraits epitomise the astonishing variety and innovation of his art. This major exhibition of over 80 works focuses on the artist's portrayal of family, friends and lovers and reveals his creative processes as he moved freely between drawing from life, humorous caricature and expressive painting from memory. On display will be portraits from all periods of Picasso's career and in all media, from the realist paintings of his boyhood to his later ultra-spontaneous canvases. The works on show will range from celebrated masterpieces loaned by international institutions to works in private collections being shown in the United Kingdom for the first time. Exhibition co-organised by the National Portrait Gallery, London and the Museu Picasso, Barcelona.

Starting and finishing in Hyde Park, runners pass Buckingham Palace, St James's Park and the Houses of Parliament before following the river to Blackfriars Bridge and back. The next leg takes them under both Admiralty and Wellington Arch, through Green Park, all around Hyde Park andKensington Gardens (through avenues of beautiful autumnal trees) before passing the Royal Albert Hall and across the finish line.

The release of his fourth studio album, Purpose, has taken the limelight away from his questionable recreational activities and possibly even seen him gain some new Beliebers. Nearly three years in the making, Purpose debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, giving Bieber his sixth number on album, and also saw him set a record for having the most simultaneous top 40 entries from a living artist, with eight songs from the album charting in the top 40 UK Singles Chart. The star will stop by The O2 for two nights in October as part of the Purpose World Tour .
