So your friends and family have been and gone, the presents have all been opened and that warm and fuzzy festive feeling has disappeared all to quickly, leaving a desolate emptiness in its wake.

So why not look on the bright side as we take you through some of the exciting events coming up in 2014 to help you avoid the dreaded post Christmas comedown – or at least take your mind of it for a few precious minutes!

Why not indulge your inner culture vulture and pop along to the new exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery.

Showcasing over 140 pieces, including the inconic conical bra ad corsets worn by Madonna during her 1990 Blonde Ambition World Tour, this fascinating exhibition is certainly not to be missed!

The exhibition runs from the 9th April – 17th August 2014. Click here for full programme information.
