What’s on > What’s on in April

¡Viva! Spanish and Latin American Festival continues in April, with more of the best Spanish and Latin American cinema, and the arrival of Señor Serrano’s spectacular theatrical tribute to King Kong, Kingdom.

Later in the month, Headlong are back with a revelatory new production of Shakespeare’s Richard III, starring Tom Mothersdale as one of theatre – and history’s – most murderous villains.

Opening in our main gallery on Sat 6 Apr is Emma Smith’s 5Hz & Euphonia – and interactive exhibition based around the sounds we make to communicate with each other, and the creation of a whole new singing language that you can learn in just 15 minutes!
