Sarah Silverman

Silverman is massive in the States but her first show over here in 2008 was an unmitigated disaster.  

Tickets were priced at £50 and when she performed for just 40 minutes she felt the wrath of her disgruntled fans.

Back to set the record straight, she holes up in the Bloomsbury for a night of foul-mouthed and caustic comedy.

Fingers crossed. 

£25, Feb 9, 7.30pm

The Great Map

The large outdoor space at the National Maritime Museum becomes a giant interactive map loaded with info on seafaring ways and mega water battles.

You can walk across it and there are also touch screen tablets with more info so you can learn how the oceans’ winds drive ships, and who defeated who, where, and most importantly, how.

The Rest is Noise Festival 

This showcase of music from the 20th century reflects on how war, sex, race and politics shaped those hundred years.

“Inspired by [music critic] Alex Ross’ award-winning book, The Rest Is Noise, we have set out to capture the spirit of a century and how music reflected its discords,” Southbank Centre artistic director Jude Kelly explains of the seven-month-long festival.0

With more than 100 concerts (Liza Minnelli), 150 talks and debates, film screenings (Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris), the history of music from 1900 onwards comes under the spotlight in a way never before seen in this country.

Until June 9, various times
