Christmas is all about going to the theatre. Annoying kids? A play will shut them up. Relatives you can’t stand? Take them to a show so you don’t have to talk to them. Or, of course, you could just go and enjoy some stagey festive fun. London is beginning to pulsate with bright twinkly Christmas theatre, from big West End showstoppers to smaller but no less delicious treats in local venues. Here’s our list of the best stuff coming up.

Elf The Musical @ Dominion Theatre, on now until 2 January

We start with a big one. And can report that the most expensive show in London is… not bad. Whether that justifies watching it live rather than sticking the film on again is another question.

 

Raymond Briggs's Father Christmas @ Lyric, 20 November-24 December
This well-honed production of the children’s bedtime favourite sees a cantankerous Santa Claus dealing with the practical pitfalls of his busiest time of year. It also features live music and puppets.

 

Beauty And The Beast @ Polka Theatre, 20 November-7 February
This retelling of Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont’s fable sees Belle argue with her sister Cassandra, save her dad from the fearsome Beast then head off to his castle to set him free from his curse. How’s that for a strong female role model?

 

Jack And The Beanstalk @ Hackney Empire, 21 November-3 January
One of the best pantos in town, this one promises epic fun with a cast that includes Olivier-Award winning Grand Dame Clive Rowe.

 

Cinderella @ Lyric, 21 November-3 January
Traditional panto gets a streetwise reboot here, much like Cinderella who loses a glittery Converse rather than a glass slipper. For ages 6+.

.

The Twelve Days Of Christmas @ Chickenshead Theatre, 25 November-9 January
The carol full of counting practice serves as the basis for an adventure about four children who flee their evil step-family to follow a mysterious partridge on a quest for five gold rings. Inclusive fun for everyone aged 5+.

 

Cinderella And The Beanstalk @ Theatre 503, 25 November-30 December
More meta mayhem as three panto writers arrive on stage only to realise they haven’t got a cast; the show must go on however so they jump in and do their best to cover the cracks.

 

The Snowman @ Peacock Theatre, 25 November-3 January
Sadler's Wells's dance-filled adaptation of the popular tale by Raymond Briggs revolves around the friendship between a boy and his snowman. Elegant design and the obligatory inclusion of Walking in the Air means you’re pretty much guaranteed to melt.

 

Around The World In 80 Days @ St James Theatre, 26 November-16 January
An economical retelling of Jules Verne’s story that sees a cast of eight play 50 characters from every corner of the globe, as Phileas Fogg tries to circumnavigate it in record time. Suitable for ages 8 to 80.

 

A Christmas Carol @ Bridge House Theatre, 30 November-22 December
This terrific theatre pub in Penge is well-known for masterful minimalism — last year’s It’s A Wonderful Life was the show of the season. This time Guy Retallack directs a play about putting on the Victorian spook story — so something like Dickens meets Noises Off.

Britain's senior-most Indian-origin minister has said Narendra Modi's first visit to the UK as the Prime Minister will be a chance for the two countries to take their "special relationship into the modern context"

Britain’s senior-most Indian-origin minister has said Narendra Modi’s first visit to the UK as the Prime Minister will be a chance for the two countries to take their “special relationship into the modern context”. Priti Patel will be the driving force during Modi’s much-anticipated visit between November 12 and 14 as British Prime Minister David Cameron’s Indian Diaspora Champion. She said Modi’s visit at the time of auspicious occasion of Diwali will be one of the biggest celebrations in the UK. 

Patel, who took charge as employment minister in the Cameron-led Cabinet after the May elections, said the visit would be a chance for the two countries to take their“special relationship into the modern context in terms of supporting Prime Minister Modi’s vision of economic development”. “India as a global leader stands tall in the world and we can support India’s global aspirations, whether it’s on employment, on investment or on trade. As two nations we stand together, shoulder to shoulder to meet those shared objectives,” she said.

The bridal outfit is so valuable that it is being kept in a glass box and watched over by a security guard.

The most expensive Asian dress in the UK has been unveiled in Birmingham

 

It has a price tag of £100,000 and is the most expensive Asian wedding outfit ever produced.

Encrusted with diamonds, the sumptuous white wedding lengha weighs more than 30 kilos has been made by celebrity couturist Sati Takhar.

Sati, who is based in Birmingham’s Soho Road, will unveil the outfit at The Asiana Bridal Show in London tomorrow.

The traditional Asian bridal outfit is so valuable that it is being kept in a glass box and watched over by a security guard.

“We’ve created the ultimate fantasy, an outfit that is so exquisite we’re placing it inside a glass box!” says Sati, 32, who has been a bridal designer for more than 10 years.

His inspiration came from watching the Victoria’s Secret lingerie show last year where Brazilian models Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima took to the catwalk at London’s Earl’s Court wearing $2 million Dream Angels Fantasy Bras.

The bras featured 16,000 rubies, diamonds and sapphires, all of which are strung together with 18-carat gold.

“I’ve seen and heard everything when it comes to weddings and the Victoria’s Secret show got me thinking,” says Sati.

“I have clients who have flown in Kim Kardashian’s make-up artist in from New York to do their bridal make-up.

“The Asian wedding market is worth a lot. I was inspired to try something similar to the Victoria’s Secret show in bridalwear.”

The decadent white silk lengha (a traditional skirt and top) features an embroidered strapless corset and full-flared skirt, finished with a veil around the head and shoulders.

It is a collaboration with elite Indian jewellery brand Dhir Diamond Jewellers, who have provided the jewels for the gown.

London jewellery designer Vansh Dhir says: “Diamonds aren’t just meant for wedding rings!

“In this creative collaboration we are showcasing innovative ideas for combining your jewellery with your outfit.

“It’s a masterpiece that sets the benchmark for what is possible in the world of weddingwear.”

Worth more than £3 billion a year, the British Asian wedding industry is the second most successful area of entrepreneurship among South Asians living in the UK after the restaurant and catering business.

New research by Asiana Wedding Magazine shows the average Asian couple in the UK spends upwards of £50,000 on a wedding with lowest figures being around £25,000 – well above the average price of a British wedding which is currently £21,000.

Some spend more than a million pounds on their nuptials, extravagant occasions that can be celebrated for several days and attended by upwards of 1,000 guests. All of Sati’s designs are bespoke and normally sell for around £3,000.

“Not all of our outfits costs £100,000,” says Sati. “But when a brides puts on one of our outfits she feels £100,000.”

Sati goes through the entire process with each bride, from choosing fabrics and sketching designs in front of her to making a toile mock-up of the outfit in cotton for her try on ahead of the final fitting.

“I get to know the brides well throughout the process,” he adds. “One brought her dad to the toile fitting the other day and he recorded it with a camcorder. It was sweet.”

For Sati, the logistics of displaying a £100,000 gown have been just as intense as coming up with the design.

“I’ve never done anything like this before,” he adds. “It’s a large amount of money so we’ve had to make sure we’ve got all the relevant insurances and security for it on the day.”

Sati’s design will be seen by 10,000 visitors at the The Asiana Bridal Show at London’s Lancaster Hotel today.
