Cultural Calendar

We will be returning in April, 2011. Could anyone point me to a calendar of events where I could find out what shows, concerts, temporary exhibits, specail events, etc will be occuring in April so that I can book in advance.

Many thanks!!

Apart from individual sites for museums, the South Bank and so on, you could probably start with Visit London's event calendar and Time Out nearer the time.

I know you want to book things maybe well ahead, but once you get closer to your trip, you might also check:

And, as you've asked the same question in another place, have a look at www.timeout.com/paris/ for there.

In our experience, London information isn't available anywhere near as far in advance as is common in the US. We've found that 2-3 months is as far forward as you can get from most arts venues, although there are exceptions such as the Royal Opera and the English National Opera. (The National Theatre is distinctly not an exception.)

Also, many venues and organizations seem to have "seasons" that run on a calendar year basis rather than the academic year basis that's common in the US. This means that the lead time for planning often depends on the time of year you plan to be there.
