Set design from Warhorse
Costumes from The Lion King
Chicago worn by Ruthie Henshaw
And The Audience worn by Helen Mirren
The most impressive display was from a Curious Incident of the Dog at Night Time
Not quite sure I've done it justice but hopefully you get the idea.
There was a whole section of headwear mainly of pantomime dames
So there we have it. I should add that I was allowed to take photos in the free Curtain Up exhibition and was indeed encouraged to snap away. I was, however, incredibly disappointed by the Bottecelli exhibition though I suppose it didn't really help that I'm not a huge fan of the original art work at the best of times. But I do get frustrated by galleries not allowing you to take photos.
As you may know I live in central Brixton but luckily where I live is surrounded by a huge communal garden. I have bird feeders which seem to attract more and more birds which is fantastic. Yesterday I decided I would take a few snaps of some of the visitors. Sadly everyone was photo shy except the cheeky starlings.
Despite there being three feeders they still like to have a fight over dinner. Some people just have no table manners!
Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I can get some decent shots of the seventeen or so House Sparrows who have made their home in the garden, or the Blue Tit, Robin, Wren, Dunnock, Green Finch or Lesser Spotted Woodpecker I've seen. The city - there is more wildlife than you think!

OH suggested walking along the canal which was close by and I requested that we pop over to Broadway Market which was on the way. Here is what we saw:
