What's on this weekend? Plan your family weekend with the kids with our round up of what's on in London 29th-30th September
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 any parents' radar! Click on the headers and links for more info and to book:
Near the foothills of the Himalayas, three orphans open a magical book under a Banyan tree. Stories of headstrong crows, a mongoose who wants a family, and a brave leopard rise from its pages. Sounds fantastic! 28 September–21 October. Tickets: £13.50, £10 concs. Suitable for ages 7+.
The special feature returns this year to kick off Halloween season! Visitors can see over 100 floating pumpkins in the Great Hall, learn wand combat moves and take part in live duels with Death Eaters. Dark Arts run until 10th November. Book your tickets by clicking on the title header.
LEGO-mad kids will be in heaven this weekend if they sign up for these Mini Engineers workshops. Children will work as part of a team to construct their favourite sights from around London, whether it’s a building, a landmark or a mode of transport. A large kit of more than 4,500+ LEGO pieces will be available to dive into. Book the Saturday slot (2pm) in South Kensington or the Sunday one (3pm) in Hampstead. Perfect for ages 5–11.
Joe and Ella are a great team - they make each other laugh, help each other out and tackle all the chores their busy lives throw at them. But one morning things begin to change when Joe gets all tangled up and Ella has to do things alone. Catch this darling show this weekend only at the Half Moon Theatre. Tickets: £7. Suitable for ages 2–7.
The Royal Albert Hall is kicking off the Festival of Film this Saturday! The month-long programme is a true celebration of film (with a special focus on soundtracks and scores). This weekend families can catch screenings of Jurassic Park with a full orchestra performing the music. Or book tickets for The Breadwinner, an Oscar-nominated animation which is followed by a post-screening Q&A.
