V&A’S MEDIEVAL GALLERIES
The Victoria & Albert museum’s newly-opened rooms of exhibits from the era of 300-1600 are a magnificent triumph, perhaps the finest museum space in London now. Discover why the Dark Ages were anything but, with extraordinary tapestries, clothes, sculptures, paintings, wedding chests, manuscripts, reliquaries and an awful lot more besides. Entry free, 10am-5.45pm daily, Victoria & Albert Museum, Cromwell Road, SW7 2RL. www.vam.ac.uk

LA CLIQUE AT THE ROUNDHOUSE
After its run in the West End earlier this year, the risqué cabaret show that first set pulses racing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival a few years go has now settled in for a winter run at the Roundhouse. Expect all manner of weird, wacky and wonderful. Until 17 Jan, The Roundhouse, Chalk Farm Road, NW1 8EH. www.roundhouse.org.uk
