Lambeth - What's on for the family - December 1st-2nd 2012

Woo hoo! December is here! Time to decorate trees, eat mince pies, visit Santa, sup mulled wine and sing along to bad Xmas tracks and glorious Christmas carols

SATURDAY (1st December)

Pinch punch, first day of the month and no returns!!

Kids don't mind the cold? Then pack them off to Saturday Morning Nature Explorers at the Brockwell Park Greenhouses. Aimed at 7 to 12 yr olds, it starts at 10am and costs £2 a child.

The Brockwell Park Greenhouses are located not far from the cafe on the top of the hill in Brockwell Park. Buses to the main park entrance at Herne Hill include  3, 196, 322, 68 and 37. You can also catch the overground to Herne Hill.

Looking for pressies? Like a bit of craft? Then head to Battersea Arts Centre, Lavender Hill, SW11 for the We Make London Christmas Fair. Parents with small children can drop them off to the Bees Knees creche and get on with their shopping!

To get to Lavender Hill, catch the 345 or 77.

Rush back from shopping and head up to West Norwood for A Festive Event of Christmas carols, children's activities and hot food and drink. The evening is located at St Lukes (that's the great big church) and runs from 4pm to 8pm.

To get to West Norwood, you can catch buses 2, 68, 315 432 and 322.  The area is also served by the overground at West Norwood Station.

SUNDAY (2nd December)

Didn't get up to West Norwood yesterday? Head up today for the West Norwood Feast which has lots of Christmassy events for the family (see link here!) Looks like lots of fun. The day starts at 10am and finishes at 4pm.

Buses and trains as mention before.

Are you closer to North Lambeth? Fancy popping to Morley Winter fair. It runs from 11:30am to 3:30pm, has family activities and free face painting!

Morley College is located at 61 Westminster Bridge Road, SE1 and can be reached by buses 159 and 59 or Lambeth North tube station.

Tired of Christmas already? Then celebrate the Pagan Roman Festival of Saturnalia at Guildhall Art Gallery today from 12pm to 4pm. There will be lantern making, shrine offering and handling Roman objects. 

The art gallery is located at Guildhall Yard (off Gresham Street), EC2V. Catch 133 to Bank and walk from there.
Boo-boo is well excited about all the things she can visit this week!
Well, that is a Christmas taster weekend! Have a good one!
