What's On in London - July 2015




Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championship
-------------------------------------------------------
The world's top players come to play the most watched event in the Grand Slam calendar.
Wimbledon: The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, Church Road, London, SW19 5AE
Tube: Wimbledon Park Station
Dates: 29th June to 12th July 2015


In 2015 the Wimbledon Championships, the most watched event in the Grand Slam calendar, will be held one week later than usual to give the players time to recuperate after the clay court season. Many tennis pros covet the Wimbledon crown, played out at the All England Club, above all others and the grass surface makes for fast, breathless duels. Tickets can be applied for through the public ballot on the website, if however you're not lucky enough to get hold of one it is easy to get in to the grounds if you queue up in the morning. However, there are only 500 tickets for the centre courts available, so you have to turn up seriously early - or queue overnight - to be certain of getting to see the biggest matches. But in the first week the outer courts still have some of the world's greatest players and you can grab tickets for them if you arrive by about 9am.


Shrek's Adventure
--------------------------

This Shrek-themed London attraction features ten fairytale-themed shows and a magical 4D bus.

Having already been the subject of a West End musical back in 2011, the Shrek saga is now the inspiration behind a new London attraction which opens in July. A partnership between DreamWorks Animation and Merlin Entertainments - the company behind the London Eye, London Aquarium and London Dungeon - Shrek's Adventure is a walk-and-ride attraction on the South Bank. Visitors are invited to jump aboard a magical 4D bus, with Donkey as the tour guide, and embark on a journey through ten live fairytale-themed shows. You'll be able to visit Shrek's swamp, find your fortune in the crystal ball, get lost in the mirror maze and meet Shrek and his pals, as well as characters from other DreamWorks films such as Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda and How To Train Your Dragon.


The Gruffalo: Tall Stories Theatre Company
------------------------------------------------------------------
The loveable little mouse takes a stroll through the deep, dark wood.
Lyric Shaftesbury Avenue, Shaftesbury Avenue, London, W1D 7ES
Dates: 1st July to 6th September 2015


The Gruffalo is a classic that kiddies just love and this Tall Stories adaptation of the picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler is "A fine piece of children's theatre," says The Sunday Times; "Monstrous fun," says The Daily Mail. The plot which begins with the loveable little mouse taking a 'stroll through the deep, dark wood' is enchantingly told by Tall Stories with a winning simplicity. Threatened by various predators, a snake, an owl and a gruffalo with ''terrible tusks and terrible claws, and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws'', the mouse outwits them all. The cast of three manage to transform the stage with remarkably few props and a host of infectiously catchy songs, not to mention some superb dance routines and non-stop drama. Many of the memorable lines become catchphrases and are repeated throughout the show in a bid to appeal to the innate 'again, again' approach favoured by children. By the end of the show they can raucously join in with their favourite bits.



The Four Fridas
--------------------------

London Coliseum - English National Opera (ENO), St Martin's Lane, London, WC2N 4ES
Dates: 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th Jul 2015

The Dutch National Ballet company presents a brand new ballet influenced by the Brothers Grimm story of Cinderella and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon. Wheeldon has created an enchanting ballet set to Prokofiev's magnificent score but it's the "enthralling" sets (New York Times) by Julian Crouch which make Act 1 a "triumph of fantasy" in which "Cinderella's slipper rises into the air and hovers, dreamlike". There are twists on the traditional narrative with a fleshed out backstory for the lead characters. And the result is a "winningly charming" production; the "most dramatically convincing Cinderella in ballet, a triumph of storytelling and stage design firmly in touch with the 21st century" says the Financial Times.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Delibes's three-act opera is a love story set during British rule in India.

Dates: 9th to 31st July 2015

Delibes's three-act opera, best known for it's flower duet, features Fflur Wyn as the title character and Robert Murray as Gerald. While most of us know the flower duet - familiar because of its use by a well-known airline company - there's more to Lakme than this. Set during British rule in India, the story tells of officer Gerald who "stumbles on the sacred garden of a militant Brahmin priest opposed to the foreign occupiers and falls in love with his daughter, Lakme" - The Guardian. Last shown here at Holland Park Opera seven years ago when it was well recieved, this is a new production of an opera which remains a relative rarity in London.
