January is officially behind us and that means it’s time to crawl out of hibernation and experience London’s top events in February 2022. It may be the shortest month of the year but is by no means low key with Chinese New Year just around the corner, followed by Valentine’s Day shortly after!
What’s more? While many of you may have had bookings cancelled in the run up to Christmas, exhibitions are back up and running and shows have returned to the west end, hopefully this time for good!
From London fashion week 2022 to the top art exhibitions London 2022 has to offer, here’s our top pick of things to do this month.
London Fashion Week – From 18 to 22 February
It’s that time of the year again! Prepare yourself for a week jam packed with catwalk shows, presentations, appointments, and events because London Fashion Week 2022 is back and this time with more razzle dazzle than ever before.
Compared to last year, London Fashion Week February 2022 will be held via a mix of virtual and physical events, so head to the website for your front row tickets, whether that be in person or from the comfort of home.
Expect glamour, glitz and everything in between as the capital prepares to welcome some of the biggest names in the business.
Van Gogh Self Portraits – Until 8 May
If you were one of the unlucky ones to have missed the immersive Van Gogh exhibition last year, fear not! The iconic work of this troubled artist returns to the capital once again and as the first ever exhibition devoted solely to Vincent van Gogh's self-portraits, this London event 2022 is definitely one for the diary. So, head on down to Somerset House and admire 15 self-portraits that haven’t been seen together since they occupied the artist himself’s studio!
A Century of the Artist’s Studio: 1920 – 2020 – Until 29 May
Featuring works of 80 artists and collectives from around the world, this much anticipated London event 2022 at The Whitechapel Gallery presents a 100-year survey of the studio. You can expect work from the likes of Francis Bacon, Louise Bourgeois, Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol to more contemporary figures such as Walead Beshty, Lisa Brice and Kerry James Marshall, to name just a few!
Beatrix Potter: Drawn to Nature – Until 25 September
If you missed the immensely popular Alice in Wonderland exhibition last year, fear not! The Victoria and Albert has offered another fantastic opportunity to be transported back to our childhoods this month with Beatrix Potter: Drawn to Nature. As far as art exhibitions London 2022 go, this is a top pick for kids, students and families alike. Be guided through Potter’s life as not only a creative genius, but a scientist and conversationist and discover what inspired her work through the years!
