Created by acclaimed Cuban choreographer Nilda Guerra, Vamos Cuba! is set in the crazy chaos of Havana airport, where families part, lovers reunite, and time flies when you’re having fun. In a place of new beginnings and old romances, where reality calls and dreams take flight, the audience will experience the joy and passion of Cuban life with all the vibrancy and humour that typifies the Cuban spirit.

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous.
