Pride and Prejudice presented by Illyria
In a social whirlwind of balls, dinners and very eligible officers, Lizzie Bennett and Fitzwilliam Darcy stand alone as the only sane people – and they hate each other! Or do they? Can she see beyond his pride, and can he overcome his prejudice, in order to achieve their mutual happiness? The irrepressible Illyria sharpen their claws to bring you Jane Austen at her vibrant, pacy and witty best!
£11, suitable for all ages.
N.B. though children may attend under supervision this is not a children’s production, tickets for under 5’s £7.

Exhibition
Until Sunday 19 September
The Japan – British Exhibition of 1910
The Japan-British Exhibition in 1910 was to help strengthen the alliance between the two countries, in terms of political friendship, trade and commerce. Showing gardens, temples, tea-houses and water features built by Japanese designers and workmen, visitors felt that they were in Japan itself when they saw the paper and stone lanterns and the cherry and almond blossom on the trees.

This exhibition documents the story of the 1910 exhibition which was held in White City.
Free, usual Museum opening hours.
