The best events to book on Time Out Tickets right now

The best concerts, films, comedy shows and more on Time Out Tickets


Singer-songwriter Sevdaliza (real name Sevda Alizadeh) makes artful left-field pop that seems to draw from Portishead, Björk, and Velvet Rope-era Janet Jackson, while remaining as contemporary as FKA Twigs and Little Dragon. Born in Tehran and raised in Rotterdam, Sevdaliza released her first EP The Suspended Kid (featuring the banger 'Backseat Love') back in 2015, followed by her debut studio album Ison last year. Check out her unique mix of trip-hop and orchestral melodies this March at Omni Space.

For all the other excellent events making their way to the capital, make sure you take a look at our picks and book them, right here, right now. It really couldn't be any easier.

Film

The Greatest Showman

Critics' pick

In a year with no Baz Luhrmann movie, The Greatest Showman fills the gap with a big, brassy, unashamedly over-the-(big)-top circus musical. As befits an origin story for legendary American impresario, entrepreneur and snake oil salesman PT Barnum and his troupe of talented oddballs and outsiders, it's low on subtlety and high on spectacle.
