Time is flying as we’re nearly a quarter way through the year. Christmas and New Year’s seem a distant memory and Spring isn’t too far off. There’s even daffodils in the shops already. Still, it’s a bit too cold for picnics and beach trips, so a trip to the theatre seems like a great choice to get a bit of air, but still keep warm.

Here’s our run down of what’s happening in the West End this March.
