As August draws to a close, so do many of London's mainstream cultural offerings... So as well as a sprinkling of exciting openings this week, we're giving you plenty of warning to catch some of London's cooler cultural stuff before it's over, along with our summer...
Be There First: London Shows Opening
Hotel Follies opens at the Arts Theatre tomorrow; be quick if you want to catch this Matthew Bourne-connected 1940s-style song-and-dance revue, it's only on until Sunday. If the weather's good and you'd rather see a show outside this week, try Rojo: Catalan circus artists performing in the National Theatre Square2.
Also outside, but you'll have to try your luck with returns on the day as it's sold out, is the very exciting-sounding Daniel Kitson's Songs for the Starlit Sky at the Open Air Theatre in Regent's Park. Starts at midnight...
Finally, if you're into dancing, get ready for Big Dance 2010 with Dance Mob at the Southbank Centre on Sunday. You can learn the Dance Mob routine each hour on the hour in The Clore Ballroom from 11; the Dance Mob performance takes place at 3pm.
London Shows Closing: Last Chance to See
Royal Vauxhall Tavern's Hot August Fringe of comedy, cabaret, burlesque and the like comes to a suitably risqué close on Friday.
Monday is your last chance to make sure your kids are getting Street Smart at the London Transport Museum.
Fantastic photography exhibition Ethelburga Tower closes at the Geffrye Museum on Monday: don't say we didn't warn you. And the Press Photographer's Year 2009 exhibition at the National Theatre also closes on Monday.
Finally, Monday is also your last chance to play the building at The Roundhouse. Have fun...
