London events 2014: The end of the year is upon us and it brings a period of dates spent with family members who we avoid all year, presents we never wished to receive and overeating (cheer – just cheer), but it also brings a time of reflection.

Unwillingly, questions like: What did I do this year? And what have I accomplished? Start to pop in our heads. And, let’s be honest, along with our goals (the vegetarian diet and the quit smoking thing) we probably also missed a couple of London events.

While here at Printsome although we can’t help you with your spiritual path (sorry), we sure can give you a little heads up of what London events are gathering across 2014. Just so that next year’s things-I-didn’t-do list doesn’t include that wicked exhibit everyone keeps talking about.

What: Richard Hamilton Exhibition

Where: Tate Modern

When: It will also start on February 13th and will exhibit till May 26th.

Why: He’s known as one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century and the founding father or Pop Art. If that’s not enough reason, then I don’t know what is.

Where: Royal Albert Hall

Why: A live orchestra along with projections will be performing the best of the Pixar movies. If you’ve never liked any Pixar movie then you have no soul – or you came out of your mother’s uterus when you were 40.

What: Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs
