Adventure-seeking bath toys come alive in Little Angel Theatre's new family show! From giving a muddy piglet a shower to putting out a fire for a frightened baboon, the toys have water at the ready for any emergency – as long as they’re home for the children’s bath time at the end of the day. Catch Julia Donaldson and David Roberts’ story on stage. On until 20th April. Suitable for ages 2–5. Tickets: £13.50 adults, £11.50 kids.
Pop in for a storytelling session and find out more about Mother Ross this Saturday! At the end of the 17th century, Christian Davies - also known as Kit Cavanagh or Mother Ross - joined the British Army disguised as a man to try to find her lost husband. She was a respected and well-loved soldier, serving in two wars, until her secret was discovered. Drop in to the Atrium at 11am, 1pm and 3pm to see the performance.
How have inventions shaped the London of today? What would you invent to change the future? Museum of London is encouraging children to get curious this Saturday with the help of scientists from Imperial College London. Immerse yourself and be inspired by science and technology in invention-themed activities. You might also bump into Little Miss Inventor from the Mr Men and Little Miss books! She’ll be around to share some of her ideas and encourage the next generation of inventors. Saturday, 9th March. Suitable for ages 7+.
For more science adventures head to the New Wimbledon Theatre this Sunday. Based on the original TV Show and celebrating its 10th anniversary live on tour, Brainiac Live! is back. The show is more mischievous than ever and will take children on a crazy ride through the wild world of the weird and wonderful. Expect exploding dustbins, combusting microwaves and loads of live daredevil stunts! Sunday, 10th March. Tickets from £20.
London Transport Museum is exploring how we can slow down and take care of ourselves in this busy, bustling city.

The weekend activities are most suitable for families with children aged 3-12. Free with museum admission. 9–10 March, 11am–4pm.
