What's on this weekend? Plan your family weekend with the kids with our round up of what's on in London 26th–27th January
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:
One of London's biggest arts and entertainment festivals returns this week. Vault Festival has 400+ shows in its line up for 2019. Click on the title and browse the long list. For this weekend, we love the sound of Alf the Highwayman (pictured above). The show tells the story of Alf who has an eye for other people's possessions. He snatches and grabs without a thought for other people's feelings. But it's time for him to change tack and learn that there are better ways to play.
Or for some family stand up comedy, book tickets for the Comedy Club 4 Kids.
Visit the Museum of Brand's pop-up board game area and have a go at family favourites like Monopoly, Scrabble and Connect 4 or try brand new board games. On until 31st Jan.
Crack some eggs and whisk some flour for a perfect waffle mix this Sunday with Chelsea Creperie. Don't forget to decorate your waffles with some chocolate, strawberries, bananas, blueberries, Nutella and other toppings. Session starts at 4pm. £19. Ages 3+.
A modern adventure-filled retelling of the ancient myth opens this Saturday at Unicorn Theatre. Icarus's family is falling apart and he feels powerless to help. His father is far away across the sea, forced to work for the tyrannical King Minos, and is unable to return. So Icarus makes a decision: it’s time to take control of their fate. But what can one boy do against injustice? Can he save his family or will he crash and burn? Tickets: £8–£20. Ages 8–12.
If you are planning ahead for February half term, this week is the last chance to book the fab Wizard of Oz workshop from the Royal Academy of Dance. Kids will sing and dance to the music and choreography inspired by the popular musical, closing with a performance for parents and guardians. Suitable for students aged 7-13 years. The workshop is on 17th February but booking closes this Sunday.
