Don’t know your two-step from your tango? Sadler’s Wells Sampled presents performances from across the spectrum of dance, giving a taster of work by New York City Ballet, Russell Maliphant and Paco Peña Flamenco, among others.

With tickets from £3, you won’t find a better value show this year. 2–3 Feb. sadlerswells.com
 
 
Eat, Drink & Be Merry
 
Linje Tio at The Den

Pop in to the Pita Party
Hosted at Berber & Q Shawarma Bar, a group of esteemed chefs will cook variations of delicious and exciting pita recipes. After supper, the tables will be pushed aside for a evening of music and plenty of cocktails. Buy tickets here. 4 Feb
 
 
See the Fashion of Royal Women in Bath
 
 
Although Meghan Markle is the latest royal style arbiter, Fashion Museum Bath turns its gaze to the previous generation of ‘the firm’.

From Queen Alexandra (who set the trend for chokers) to Princess Margaret, who had a penchant for Christian Dior, bask in the extravagance of Royal fashion this weekend. 3 February – 28 April. fashionmuseum.co.uk
 
 
Head to these New Exhibitions...
 
Gursky at Hayward Gallery
As if his first UK retrospective wasn’t reason enough visit the Hayward, Andreas Gursky’s pictures are made all the more spectacular by new pyramid roofing that allows natural light into museum space below. Find out more here.
 
Ocean Liners: Speed & Style
Oh, to have cruised in the golden age of the ocean liner, epitomised by Marlene Dietrich dripping in Dior, and oceans apart from Olympic-sized kiddie pools and after-dinner cabaret. The V&A has selected 250 objects from the period. Bon voyage!
 
 
International Weird Collage Show
 
 
Its London's turn to host the show that stormed New York, Berlin, Madrid and more...

In their 14th tour-de-force of contemporary collage artists, The Weird Show has brought the International Weird Collage Show to Shoreditch gallery Jealous East. The show will continue its tradition of featuring loud, disruptive art with a focus on new ways of caving out the medium.

A selection of 25 artists from around the world will exemplify the ways in which cutting-edge collage makers are leaving behind cliché and re-conceiving the process of collage. Read more here. Until 11 February

This is Edinburgh in February
 
 
This is Edinburgh - The Official Guide to Edinburgh
Welcome to February in Edinburgh! This month the city will be filled with rugby fans as the Natwest 6 Nations gets going and Edinburgh Rugby take on Leinster and Munster - though don't panic if you're not a rugby fan, there's still plenty else going on.
With the new year now in full swing, it's still important to relax and take a moment to breathe - so make sure you check out Edinburgh Lumen's calming, immersive spaces throughout the city centre. If you're after some history, or just wondering why Edinburgh has an 'Old Town' and a 'New Town', consider taking the Building a City itinerary with Edinburgh's 101 Objects to learn more.
There's still time to experience Edinburgh Zoo's Chinese Lanterns, and if your new year resolution was to get fitter, think about signing yourself up for the Kilomathon 2018!
Read on to make the most of Edinburgh in February...
