The UK's first LGBTQ+ museum opens its doors today – here's what to expect

In a city like London which boasts one of the largest, most vibrant cultural scenes in the world, it may come as a surprise that there is no space dedicated to LGBTQ+ history – not just in the capital, but the entire UK. That is, until now. Four years in the making, Queer Britain opens its doors today, dedicated to celebrating stories, people and places related to the queer community. After decades of being largely left out of the history books, the museum will shine a much-needed light on the diverse history and culture of LGBTQ+ people throughout the UK and beyond.

Launching with a temporary display that will be on show until 4 July ahead of a debut exhibition this summer, Welcome to Queer Britain will act as an introduction to the museum and the charity behind it. Alongside Alia Romagnoli's heartwarming images from 2019's Chosen Family exhibition, Allie Crewe's poignant portraits of transgender and non-binary people from her You Brought Your Own Light collection and award-winning works by Sadie Lee and Paul Harfleet on the theme of queer creativity, you can also immerse yourself in reportage photos which portray the UK's struggle for LGBTQ+ rights, including the first openly lesbian MP Maureen Colquhoun holding a defiant 'The MPs must come out' placard in 1977 plus compelling scenes from Scotland's first same-sex marriages in 2014 and Gay Pride parades across the decades. Show your support for this long-awaited opening and plan a visit for this weekend. Free; 2 Granary Square, London N1C; queerbritain.org.uk

Cabaret: how to get tickets for the hottest show of the summer

The minute you step into the dimly lit decadence of the Kit Kat Club at London's Playhouse Theatre, you'll soon realise why the new production of Cabaret is the hottest ticket in town.

Offering a completely immersive experience – think themed bars complete with pretzels, musicians and moustachioed dancers in French knickers – and a starry new cast including Hawkeye's Fra Fee as The Emcee and Amy Lennox as Sally Bowles, audiences are transported back to the world of 1930s Berlin as part of this astonishing and unforgettable performance. Tickets start from just £30, plus there's a variety of different packages to help upgrade your evening. We're talking stage-side tables, an exclusive pre-show tasting menu and plenty of Moët & Chandon Imperial Champagne to sip like a true bohemian. Plus, with 7 Olivier Awards under its belt, Cabaret is now officially the must-see show of the summer. Get involved.

Become an armchair detective with this addictive drama based on real-life events

True crime, whodunnits and an ominous husband take centre stage in highly-anticipated drama, The Staircase, which explores 2001's perplexing death of Kathleen Peterson (Toni Collette) and the family saga that ensued. When the 48-year-old is found dead at the bottom of the stairs in their house, her husband Michael (Colin Firth) deems it a tragic accident. But the 35 cuts, bruises and lacerations allude to anything but. As suspicions point to Michael, their façade as a happily married couple with a perfectly blended family starts to crumble.

"Even if you've watched the fascinating Netflix docu-series that this is based upon, you'll still be completely transfixed," says Stylist's digital entertainment writer Morgan Cormack. "Through flashbacks to the months preceding Kathleen's death, you can't help but feel like a sofa detective. Clues and red herrings swirl throughout the episodes, making for a drama that's easy-to-watch and terribly addictive. The Staircase delivers stellar acting from the likes of the charismatic – yet suitably socially awkward – Colin Firth, plus Toni Collette and Sophie Turner, but it's in the relatable chaos that this crime drama really comes into its own. It forces you to ask yourself what you would do if a beloved family member was accused of murder – would you close ranks or hunt for your own answers?" Available now on Sky and NOW TV
