Get immersed in some Donaldson and Scheffler magic this week at Rose Theatre in Kingston. The beloved picture book about Tabby and his missing friend will be on stage from 8th to 11th August. Perfect family fun for little ones. Tickets: £15.
This Saturday, Here East will be hosting a free Canalside Family Day on the Hackney Riveria, offering free workshops, live music, and food and drink from the local vendors. Highlights of the day include arts and craft session of pot painting and tie-dyeing and free pottery lessons. The event will also include free circus skills workshops running throughout the day, with a chance for kids to have a go at poi, juggling, stilts and more.

For four weekends in August, London Designer Outlet will bring all the fun and music of the festival season to Wembley Park with their Fest For All. Activities will include festival styling from Charlotte Broadbent, as well as live music, kid’s immersive street theatre and entertainers. We love the sound of Kids Mini Fest, coming later this month with two weekends of family festival fun, including a bubble wizard, face painters, hula hooping, ribbon twirling and more. In the mornings, the LDO tipi will see buskers warm up the crowd and a DJ will play the kid’s favourite tunes and get them up on their feet to dance along! Make a great day even better with a visit to LDO’s Cineworld, where Toy Story 4, The Lion King and The Queen’s Corgi are screening all summer.
Celebrate the museum's peachy summer this Saturday with fun and games such as insect bingo, peach games and even a skyscraper challenge. Perfect for ages 5+. Cost: £2.
The popular TV programme has taken up residence on West End for the summer with its fun- and fact-filled mix of the weird and wonderful world of scientific experiments, from exploding dustbins to supercharged spinning chairs. Click on the header to read our junior reviewer's thoughts on it and get booking! Suitable for ages 6+. Runs until 1 Sept. Tickets from £17.
