When the weather gets cold and the evenings get dark, there is no better way to bring some excitement and energy into your life than by booking tickets for a great day or evening out. There are hundreds of shows and concerts opening in preparation for the Christmas season and seeing them in November is a great way to beat the crowds. Here are some of the best events going on in the music, theatre, film, comedy and dance world this month:
Matilda the Musical
This award-winning West End show premiered on Broadway earlier this year and is still running, with massive success, in London. The kids will adore the musical take on Roald Dahl’s classic tale and you’ll love seeing it at the Cambridge Theatre too. Stay in our London Covent Garden hotel to be in the heart of theatre town.
Bath Film Festival
The last week of November sees film buffs from around the country descend on the city of Bath. The annual event is in its 22nd year and is all about community film watching, with many of the city’s local venues participating. Watch previews, shorts, documentaries and feature films, as well as attending lectures and discussions about all things relating to film. Stay in our Bath Central hotel for the opportunity to be within walking distance of all of these great events.
Ross Noble – “Mindblender”
This stand up comedy legend is finishing his Mindblender tour with three dates in Hammersmith. If surreal flights of fancy are your thing you’ll love his particular brand of humour which is on show during the last three days of November. Stay in one of our London hotels to combine this with a trip to any of the other wintery activities taking place in the country’s capital.
Switch On Oxford Street
The famous Oxford Street lights will be switched on in a big celebration ceremony on 12th November. This event, which is always a great show, is the perfect way to start getting into the Christmas spirit. You can bet there will be some of the biggest names in entertainment performing as well as a megastar invited to do the switch on, so why not book to stay in one of our London hotels and head to Oxford Street to get a good look? According to reports this year’s lights will be inspired by falling snowflakes and promise to be more beautiful than ever.
Jessie J On Tour
Jessie J is on tour this winter and there are some great opportunities to see her all over the country at the beginning of November. She’s performing in Bournemouth on the 9th and 10th November, and if you haven’t been to a concert in a while, this is an ideal opportunity to book tickets and reserve a room in our Bournemouth hotel for a few days of serious fun.
People tend not to go to dance shows as often as theatre or concerts, but super successful “Britain’s Got Talent” winners Diversity are changing that. They are performing in Dublin on 30th November, and their show promises to have you awe-struck. Why not book a trip to Ireland’s capital with the family, stay in our Dublin City Centre Rathmines hotel and see something a bit different?
