What better place for an open air production of Lewis Carol's classic than Kew Gardens in the summer?! Colourful costumes, interactive games and catchy songs, this is a perfect way to go on a gentle but stimulating adventure with the entire family. 21 July–27 August. Tickets: £22.90 adults, £17.90 children, £70 group of 4. (Includes admission to Kew Gardens)
Families can take part in the artist project Plantón Móvil this Saturday from 3pm at the Whitechapel Gallery. Taking place along Brick Lane, shrubs, flowers and trees will have the opportunity to ‘walk’ down the streets and to take their place back in our public spaces. The walk will start at 6pm but families are also invited to join the artist to make props for the walk at a Family Day event from 3pm.
