Running concurrently with Art in Exile, looking at how cultural treasures in British museums and galleries were evacuated during the Second World War. At Imperial War Museum London, until 5 January 2020.

J.T.LEROY (15)

On paper, his story was a publicist’s dream – a childhood blighted by poverty, drug and sexual abuse. His first book Sarah, published in 1999, propelled young JT LeRoy to literary stardom – but it was all an elaborate literary hoax cooked up by Jewish Brooklynite Laura Alber and her boyfriend’s sister, androgynous Savannah Knoop. Stars Kristen Stewart, Laura Dern, Jim Sturgess and Diane Kruger. At JW3 on Sunday, 18 August, 8.30pm.


Cabaret legend and America’s Got Talent contestant Lynn Ruth Miller presents a captivating cabaret of storytelling posing the question: does the perfect man exist and at the age of 85, does she need to find him? At Underbelly Festival Southwark on Sunday, 18 August, 7.15pm.

In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.
