There is absolutely masses going on, but here's what to look out for:

  • Celebrate the 30th Birthday Year of Elmer with David McKee (18 Feb)
  • Living Paintings are the only charity in the UK who design, create and publish tactile and audio books for blind and partially sighted people. They are holding a session designed specifically for children aged 5-8 with visual impairments to introduce ‘Touch to See’ books, re-telling some of the best loved children’s books in braille or tactile painted pictures, to inspire a love of stories in all (18 Feb)
  • Through her beautifully illustrated storybooks, Syrian author/illustrator Nadine Kaadan helps children understand war. She is bringing an interactive storytelling and art workshop to introduce her story Tomorrow, about the strength of family love, the rich culture and history of Damascus, and a courageous little boy growing up in a time of conflict (16 Feb)
  • The National Poetry Library, the largest public collection of modern poetry in the world, hosts a line-up of engaging events to get kids of all ages into poetry, including a special ‘Rug Rhymes’ session of nursery rhymes and poems for under-5s and their carers inspired by the ever-popular We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen
  • Theatrical pirate adventure, Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs 2: The Magic Cutlass, with live music, puppetry and dastardly dinosaurs from award-winning children’s theatre company Les Petits, based on the book by Giles Andreae and Russell Ayto (19–23 Feb)
  • Created especially for parents with newborns Screaming With Laughter is a top-class afternoon comedy club created and hosted by Hatty Ashdown (14 February).
  • Peppa Pig, along with Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig and George, come to the Queen Elizabeth Hall for Peppa Pig: My First Concert, a fun, interactive introduction to a live orchestra for ages 18 months and older. (15–17 February).
  • Families can feel the thrill of the limelight and learn their favourite dance styles featured on Strictly Come Dancing in Strictly Kids, with demos from leading child ballroom dancers (21 February).
