What's On in London in June 2016

The Deep Blue Sea
Helen McCrory and Carrie Cracknell reunite for this adaptation.
National Theatre: Lyttelton Theatre, South Bank
Dates: 1st June to 17th August 2016
After working together on the acclaimed 2014 production of Medea, Helen McCrory and director Carrie Cracknell reunite for an adaptation of Terrence Rattigan's The Deep Blue Sea. Staged at the National's Lyttelton Theatre, the devastating masterpiece contains what is regarded as one of the greatest female roles in contemporary drama. In a Ladbroke Grove flat in 1952, Hester Collyer is found by her neighbours in the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt. Shortly after, the story of her affair with a former RAF pilot and the breakdown of her marriage to a High Court judge soon starts to unravel, developing into a portrait of need, loneliness and long-repressed passion.

Swan Lake
A "ravishing", "sumptuous spectacle" - The Sunday Times.
Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Gore
Dates: 1st to 12th June 2016
The English National Ballet perform Derek Deane's Swan Lake at theRoyal Albert Hall with a "superb, no-nonsense professionalism" that manages to make "such an old tale feel so very fresh" (writes Mark Monahan in The Telegraph, reviewing their performance at the London Coliseum last year). Tamara Rojo takes on the lead role for three performances dancing alongside Isaac Hernandez who makes his debut in the role of Prince Siegfried. A "ravishing", "sumptuous spectacle" - The Sunday Times.

Likely to be the most successful West End show ever.
Palace Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue
Dates: From 07th June 2016
Judging by the 36,000 retweets Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling got when she announced the Cursed Child on Twitter back in June 2015, Harry Potter the Play is going to be a HUGE hit. Coming in summer 2016, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne (whose theatre credits include Hope and Let The Right One In), and John Tiffany, the Olivier and Tony award winner director of Once. One play presented in two parts, both are meant to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings. An all-star creative team is behind the production including movement by Steven Hoggett, set designs by Christine Jones, costumes by Katrina Lindsay, music by Imogen Heap, lighting by Neil Austin, sound by Gareth Fry, special effects by Jeremy Chernick, illusions - this is a show about the boy wizard, after all - by Jamie Harrison and musical supervision by Martin Lowe. Theatrical magic.

The annual Holland Park Opera is a highlight of summer in London, when the temporary structure of Holland Park Theatre is erected in West London's Holland Park and the operatic arias soar over the tree tops.

The 2016 season, which starts on 7th June, includes five brand new main-stage productions as well as a welcome return of family opera 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'. Highlights include Mascagni's Iris, Tchaikovsky's The Queen of Spades, Die Fledermaus, La boheme, and La Cenerentola - a co-production with Danish National Opera.

Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2016: Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG)
The 2016 pavilion sees one temporary structure surrounded by four Summer Houses.
Serpentine Gallery, Kensington Gardens, South Kensington
Dates: 10th June to 9th October 2016
This summer the Serpentine Pavilion, the annual architectural project commissioned by the Serpentine Gallery, goes beyond its usual scope and presents one temporary structure surrounded by four Summer Houses in Kensington Gardens. Each Summer House is designed by different architects - Kunlé Adeyemi - NLÉ (Amsterdam/Lagos); Barkow Leibinger (Berlin/New York); Yona Friedman (Paris); and Asif Khan based right here in London who was responsible for the musical Coca Cola Beatbox Pavilion design at the London 2012 Summer Olympics. All have been asked to take the nearby Queen Caroline's Temple, a classical style summer house built in 1734, as inspiration. At the heart of the commission is a pavilion designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) - the architects behind Two World Trade Center in Manhattan - allowing space for visitors to sit and relax, learn, debate and enjoy the live events held there throughout the summer.

Trooping the Colour
A vibrant display of ceremony and military history to mark the second of the Queen's two birthdays.
Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall, Westminster, London, SW1A 2AX
Tube: Charing Cross Station, Embankment Underground Station, Westminster Station
Dates: Saturday 11th June 2016
A vibrant display of ceremony and military history, Trooping the Colour, also known as The Queen's Birthday Parade, marks the second of the Queen's two birthdays (this is the official one, her actual birthday is on 21st April). It's a spectacular piece of pageantry but also a timely reminder of the role of the armed forces who are - in theory, at least - under the Queen's control. Hundreds of well-disciplined soldiers in full dress uniform march past at the Horse Guards Parade, and a different Battalion gives the Royal Salute each year, all accompanied by stirring military music from the massed bands. On the same day, a 41-Gun Royal Salute takes place in Green Park at 12.52pm and there's a 62-Gun salute at the Tower Of London at 1pm. But if you want to avoid the crush at the Mall, you can see the Horse Guards practicing for the grand parade at two smaller rehearsals in the days leading up to the grand event - namely the Major General's Review on the Saturday before and the Colonel's Review on the Saturday two weeks before the Trooping of the Colour.

Open Garden Squares Weekend
This annual event provides a rare opportunity to peep in London's private gardens.
Various Venues London, , London, W1J 9LN
Dates: Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th June 2016

The wonderful Open Garden Squares Weekend is the one time of the year when these gardens open their gates to everyone - many of these private spaces are not accessible to the public for the rest of the year. More than 200 gardens are taking part in 2016, including The River Cafe, Ham Yard Hotel and The Roof Gardens. If you have youngsters in tow, many of the gardens stage activities for families too. Tickets allow entry to all participating gardens.

ArcelorMittal Orbit, Olympic Park, Stratford, London, E20 2ST
Tube: Stratford Station
Dates: 24th June 2016 to 1st May 2017
ArcelorMittal Orbit designer Anish Kapoor has collaborated with Belgian artist Carsten Holler, who gave us the big slide outside the Hayward Gallery in summer 2015, to create a giant slide down the side of theQueen Elizabeth Olympic Park landmark. When it opens in May 2016, the slide will be the world's longest and tallest tunnel slide, measuring approximately 178m long and will be 76m high. The descent will take about 40 seconds with sliders averaging a speed of six metres a second, or around 15mph. There are transparent sections on the slide so you can marvel at the view on the way down.
