For a perfect family show this weekend, look no further than How to Hide a Lion at artsdepot!
When a lion is chased out of town, a little girl, Iris, helps him to find somewhere to hide. Iris embarks on a mission to squash her new friend into a variety of sneaky tight spots, as the misinformed town folk try and track him down. Sunday, 4th November at 2pm and 4pm. Suitable for ages 3–6.
This weekend Museum of London Docklands celebrate London which is home to speakers of over 300 languages! Families can learn phrases from a new language, discover secret languages of the past and try their hand at British Sign Language. Plus, they can have a go at communicating in unexpected ways through song, spoken word, emojis and more. Browse the full programme by clicking on the title. We love the sound of the Jewish Eastenders and the Somali Stories.
It's not just about Christmas lights illuminating the streets of London this winter! An installation of nine giant wands lights up the walkway between Millennium Bridge and St. Paul’s Cathedral every day at 6.45pm with a short light display to music every 30 minutes until they are switched off at 10.45pm. Standing fifteen feet tall, the wands belong to some of the most beloved characters in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films. On until 12th November.
Head to Covent Garden this Sunday and immerse yourself in sound installations that dig deep into the history of the Royal Opera House; meet characters from ballets and operas and watch live demonstrations from technicians and craftspeople who bring productions to the stages. Children can learn new moves in a dance class; sing memorable tunes from opera classics; or enjoy a performance by artists from The Royal Ballet and The Royal Opera. Dress up in costume and make sure to take a selfie with the 3D Royal Opera House made of LEGO bricks. Sunday, 4th November at 11am and 2.30pm.
