London Planner: April 2014

This April, discover why London is considered the capital of comedy, and how an inflatable purple cow is partly responsible. It’s the official 450th birthday of world-famous English playwright William Shakespeare, so follow in his footsteps and join in the many events and performances celebrating his life and works. There’s an opportunity to enjoy more of the legacy from the 2012 Games with the reopening of the UK’s tallest sculpture, The ArcelorMittal Orbit, designed by artist Anish Kapoor, plus a chance to feel like a world champion as the Aquatics Centre invites us public in for a swim.
