Cirque de Soleil returns to the Royal Albert Hall! Their new show, Totem explores the all-important existential questions of the journey of mankind. With aboriginal stories, primitive and modern myths, it is sure to be spectacular. Suitable for ages 3+. Tickets from £48.40. On until 9th February.

The Winter Lights festival returns to Canary Wharf this week! This year’s theme is sustainability and waste reduction, therefore many of the pieces displayed have been crafted using recycled and sustainable materials. We love the sound of the luminescent hopscotch, 25-metre projections of marching elephants and rhinos and 24,000 individual suspended lights. Free, on until 26th January.
The spring season of Chickenshed's beloved Planet Play starts this Friday. Little ones step into the magical world of sensory learning, wonder and exploration and discover the world around them through song, music and movement. Perfect for babies and toddlers aged 0-3 years. These 45 minute sessions are on every Friday until 8th March. Tickets: £6.
One day, the singing mermaid is tempted away from all of her sea creature friends and her peaceful home at Silversands to join a travelling circus. The audiences love to hear her sing, but the poor mermaid realises that she was tricked! Instead of the swimming pool she was promised, she is kept in a small tank by the wicked circus master Sam Sly. Suitable for ages 3–8. Tickets: £13.50 adults, £11.50 children. On until 27th January.
Jay Foreman, the award winning musical comedian provides a devilishly cheeky hour of songs, poems and comedy for children.
Recommended for ages 6+. Tickets: £2–£8.50. Saturday, 19th January. 2pm. Last few tickets.
