What to see and do with your Little Londoners this weekend.
To Kill A Mockingbird
This award-winning production returns to the London stage ahead of a major UK tour and before it makes a return to London at the Barbican next year. Staged at the stunning Regent’s Park Open Air theatre, Harper Lee’s beloved book is transformed into a riveting piece of theatre, ideal for ages 7+. Catch it while you can.
28 Aug- 13 September
Regents Park Open Air Theatre
The Cocktail Gardener and Hahahopscotch
This Sunday, Brunel Museum is putting on a rather unusual, but equally wonderful, cocktail event for parents. The Cocktail Gardener and Hahahopscotch have combined forces, allowing parents to enjoy quirky cocktail infusions made with locally grown herbs whilst kids are kept busy with all sorts of activities from mini gardening sessions to sack races and tug of war.
Sunday 31st August
Winnie at the Zoo
ZSL London Zoo will be celebrating the story of one its most famous residents at the Little Creatures Family Festival this weekend with a celebration of Winnie the bear: the inspiration for A.A Milne’s much cherished Winne the Pooh. It will mark the centenary of Winnie’s arrival at the start of World War One as a mascot for a Canadian regiment. As well as an exhibition on Winnie the Bear there will be a host of family activities, including a teddy bear’s picnic to which children are encouraged to bring their favourite teddies.
Last chance to see Matisse at the Tate Modern – Kids go Free
The Tate’s exhibition ‘Matisse: The Cut-Outs’ is a great way to introduce those little minds to the world of art. Free, hands-on activities for kids directly related to the exhibition are situated throughout the Tate including a Matisse drawing studio and an interactive dream-like space of ever-changing light, sound, moving image and sculpture inspired by Matisse so your kids can really get involved.
