“I DON’T LIKE MONDAYS” AT THE HILTON PARK LANE
What better way to get over the start of the week than a Sunday night spent in the lap of luxury, with in-room treats of popcorn and Prosecco and a selection of films. Monday morning will begin with a continental breakfast delivered to the room and – if you want to play hookie – a late checkout. Package is £318 based on two people per room. hilton.co.uk/londonparklane.
ANN BOLEYN AT THE GLOBE
A combination of ambition, allure and tragedy has long made Ann the most popular woman in history. Don’t miss the chance to see the Globe’s celebration of a great English heroine that leaps between generations to reveal the debt the outrageous but scholarly King James owed to Anne when he shrewdly reconciled England’s religious factions by creating his common, “authorised” Bible.

PROM 47: BEST OF BRAHMS
Short of something to do tomorrow? Head to the BBC Proms, a consistently excellent source of entertainment, but uniquely so tomorrow due to a wonderful Brahms programme played by the Chamber Orchestra of Europe in its 30th anniversary. The soaring excesses of the third symphony will be followed by the Piano Concerto No. 1 played by Emanuel Ax. No seats left so go for the standing experience for just £5. 19 August, Royal Albert Hall.
