Catch this heartfelt puppetry show this weekend at Half Moon Theatre. Goose loves the summer, playing with his family and friends, but it is time for him to fly south for the winter. As his journey begins, things are not as they should be. Down below, a border has appeared and there are barbed wire fences and flashing lights. 1–2 February. Tickets: £7. Ages 3–7.
Celebrate the Chinese New Year a bit earlier at the Museum of London Docklands. Welcome in the Year of the Pig with some family activities and fantastic performances. Children can learn how to ribbon dance, practice some martial arts moves in a workshop or they can even try a traditional percussion instrument. Don't miss the spectacular lion dance at the front of the museum! Ages 3+.
Come and meet serving soldiers and horses from the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment in this family day of talks, workshops and activities this Saturday. Hear how the regiment provides veterinary care for its horses. Examine items of uniform from the Full Dress store. Create your own hobby horse and gallop around the Museum or join the woodwind quintet from the Army’s largest symphonic wind band for music in the Atrium. Saturday, 2nd February. 10am–4.30pm. Free.
It’s 150 years since the first periodic table and the Science Museum is having a party to celebrate this milestone! Kids can discover the wonderful world of Chemistry in an explosive show. There will be experiments including everything from party balloons to cake. Saturday and Sunday, 1.30-2pm. Suitable for ages 6+.
The masters of juggling return with a playful new creation, Spring! Jugglers become dancers, and dancers become jugglers as these two artforms explore colours. The show is set to a baroque-meets-techno score by leading composer Gabriel Prokofiev, and lighting by multi-award winning designer Guy Hoare. Ages 7+. Tickets: £12–£30. 31 Jan–2 Feb.
