What's on this weekend? Plan your family weekend with the kids with our round up of what's on in London 17th-18th November
We have heaps and heaps of inspiration for things to do in London this weekend. The following events are all a&u recommended and should be on everyone's radar. Click on the headers and links for more info and to book:
The magical festive town returns once again to Clapham Common. They have amazing activities to keep the little ones entertained this year. Backyard Cinema, Fairground and Roller Disco, hop on board a converted double decker bus and catch the puppet show What Is That In My Hat?! from Bus King Theatre, before heading upstairs for a puppet-making workshop. They also have Family Raves from Big Fish Little Fish, Okido Art and Science Workshops, plus a special kid’s Mexican Wrestling show and the Ice Rink, of course. Opens today!
Drop in to the museum's pop-up Post Office this weekend and write letters or postcards, fold envelopes and then post them in the magical make-believe letter box.
Suitable for ages 5+. Free with museum entry. Drop in from 11am to 5pm.
Head to the National Maritime Museum this weekend for a weekend of talks and workshops, all celebrating the many ways of storytelling. Most of the activities are more suitable for grown-ups but we love the sound of Tales for Tots where kids can explore the Pacific and the freezing Polar regions and meet pirates and scientists from across time in these fun sessions.
Find out what happens when the twin sisters' quiet life is interrupted by a friendly bear! Expect puppets, darling storytelling, original music all set in a fantastical fairytale forest.
Recommend for ages 4+. Tickets: £12.50 adults, £9 concs.
If you're at the British Museum this weekend visiting the major new exhibition and learning more about the powerful Assyrian king, why not pop in to a great family workshop? Older kids can investigate the rise of democracy in the Smashing Democracy workshop that runs on all day Saturday. Or they can turn themselves into a pharaoh, an Egyptian god and other characters, using a range of digital technologies! Free, just drop-in.
Here's something for all the Mums out there who long to get a bit of groove back into their lives but aren't quite ready for full-on clubbing. Regroovinate has been set up by two fabulous women and it's all about dancing, properly, for an hour, to all the best tracks ever, girls only. The best thing is that it's dark and you can be as wild as you like without anyone actually being able to see you.
See below for all details.
