Silly inventions from the 1950s
If only some of these inventions were around today, they could be pretty useful – inventions that got away

Beatles to Bowie: The 1960s exposed
Some of the most influential artists of the 1960s under one roof, all this at the National Portrait Gallery

Jan Kaplický, 1937-2009
The man who gave us Lord’s cricket ground press box and Selfridges in Birmingham, this is the last chance to see his life’s work

Mikal Hameed uses rubbish to make music
A completely new meaning to the vibrating chair, recycling for the community

Be inspired by evolution
Have a look at these Charles Darwin-inspired tattoos, which one would you like?
