THINGS TO DO WITH YOUR MOTHER IN LONDON THIS MARCH
A TRIP TO THE THEATRE
Mama Mia - Novello Theatre until 14 September
Mamma Mia! is a jukebox musical written by British playwright Catherine Johnson, based on the songs of ABBA composed by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, former members of the band. The title of the musical is taken from the group's 1975 chart-topper "Mamma Mia"
9 to 5 the Musical - Savoy Theatre until 31 August
This Dolly Parton-penned musical adaptation of her hit 1980 film finally makes its West End debut a good decade after it was seen on Broadway. Amber Davie, Natalie McQueen, Brian Conley and Louise Redknapp will star in the story of a trio of female office employees who get their own back on their letchy male boss.
Follies - National Theatre South Bank until 6 April
After a sold-out run, Follies, winner of the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival, returns in 2019. New York, 1971. There’s a party on the stage of the Weismann Theatre. Tomorrow the iconic building will be demolished. Thirty years after their final performance, the Follies girls gather to have a few drinks, sing a few songs and lie about themselves. Stephen Sondheim’s legendary musical includes such classic songs as Broadway Baby, I’m Still Here and Losing My Mind.

SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT
Christian Dior:Designer of Dreams - The V&A until 14 July
Spanning 1947 to the present day, this exhibition traces the history and impact of one of the 20th century's most influential couturiers, exploring the enduring influence of the fashion house, and Dior’s relationship with Britain.
Chelsea Physic Garden
The oldest botanic garden in London quickly became a world leader in natural medicine after opening in 1673. Its location next to the Thames in Chelsea is no accident – the river’s proximity creates a warmer microclimate meaning rare and endangered species are able to thrive. Within its walls 5,000 different edible medicinal plants grow including the world’s most northerly outdoor grapefruit tree. The garden is also home to Britain's first garden of ethnobotany (the study of the botany of different ethnic groups and indigenous peoples).
Kyoto Garden at Holland Park
A picturesque waterfall flows into a peaceful rock pool, where koi carp dart beneath the surface and peacocks stalk past on the banks. It might sound like the setting for a Japanese fairytale, but this is, in fact, one of west London's most serene spaces: Holland Park's quaint Kyoto Garden. It's the perfect spot to unwind with a book, linger with your thoughts or fight your samurai rivals to the death.
