The Wizard of Oz

New Victoria Theatre, Woking, Until 12 May

Starring ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ judge Craig Revel Horwood as The Wicked Witch Of The West, this spectacular production is a must-see.




Sinabro means “progress slowly but surely without noticing” in Korean. This local gem changes its set menu every two weeks, but rest assured: it’s always amazing. Serving the best French Bistro in this part of London, this restaurant is one of Marcus Wareing’s favourite spots, “not a secret to the locals and always busy, excellent food and atmosphere”.


Morassi Quartet

All Saints’ Parish Church, Banstead, 11 May

As part of Banstead Arts Festival, Morassi Quartet will be performing a lunchtime concert at All Saints’ Parish Church. Their programme includes the magical “Sunrise” Quartet by Haydn, Janácek’s ˇ passionate Quartet No 1 inspired by Leo Tolstoy’s novella, and a lush late-Romantic movement by Webern.


Kingston Artists Open Studios
