From nostalgic comebacks to inspiring art – here’s what we’re into this month…
1 The arty exhibition
Prints inspired by the Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli have been appearing on the runway, thanks to Valentino. Meanwhile, Botticelli Reimagined (at the V&A from 5 March) will be showing 50 of his original works alongside reinterpretations by artists from Andy Warhol to David LaChapelle.
2 The comeback kid
Craig David is back in a big way and we’re very excited. Already winning hearts with his garage-inspired cover of Justin Bieber’s Love Yourself and a new single of his own, he’s playing a sold-out show at KOKO in Camden on 3 March.
3 The fresh new play
Orange Is The New Black fave Uzo Aduba (Crazy Eyes) is heading up the cast of The Maids at London’s Trafalgar Studios (until 21 May). The amazing Zawe Ashton and Laura Carmichael also star in this story of two workers fantasising about killing their employer.
4 The must-see TV show
Indian Summers (Channel 4) is returning to our screens. Set three years after the first series, the new season promises lots of drama. Cue political trickery, terrorism, treachery, adultery – even murder.
5 The call to arms
Having conquered feminism, Caitlin Moran is ready to solve the problems of the world. Her new book is her very own political manifesto entitled Moranifesto – see what she did there? – and gives us her take on everything from Benedict Cumberbatch to global inequality. We’re in.
6 The heartwarming movie
Critics have been falling over themselves to praise the one-of-a-kind stop-motion rom-com Anomalisa (released 28 February), where David Thewlis and Jennifer Jason Leigh star as two strangers on mundane business trips staying in the same hotel. We can’t tell you enough how amazing this film is.
