Lambeth - What's on for the family - February 23rd-24th 2013

Hasn't it got cold again! Hope you have all had great half terms! Let see what we can do this weekend!

SATURDAY (23rd February)

My daughter turns one today - Happy birthday Boo-boo!

Crazy baby alert!

However, she's unwell so we won't be going anywhere. But you can. Take a trip to north Lambeth and visit the Garden Museum which has a free family activity of flower bulb planting. This session is on from 2pm to 4pm.

The Garden Museum is located on Lambeth Palace Rd SE1 7LB and can be reached by buses 3, 344, 360, 507 or C10.

 Following the River, wander along to the Southbank Centre who are currently running the Imagine Children's Festival. From 10:30am to 4pm, there are a group of children's illustrator and writers telling stories in the Clore Ballroom in the Royal Festival Hall. Visit the website for more details.

The 59 to Waterloo will take you there. Or catch the tube or overground.

Love dinosaurs and don't mind a trip into central London? Then take a look around the Grant Museum of Zoology, (UCL, Rockefeller Building, University Street, London WC1e 6DE) from 1pm to 5pm, for their Fantastic Fossils activities.

The buses 59 and 68 will take you to Euston which is close by.

SUNDAY (24th February)

Can the kids face the cold? If so, it's Junior Dig the Park at Brockwell Park. Wrap up warm and meet at the Community Greenhouses at 10:30am.

Buses into the area include 3, 196, 322, 68 and 37.

Want to stay indoors, then head to the Tate Britain in Pimlico . Every weekend they run Liminal, an interactive experience with sculpture for families running between 11am to 3pm. Ask at the Information desk when you get there.

Buses to Pimlico include the 185, 436, 36, 2 and 88.

Fancy a bit some art and storytelling? Then, pop to the National Gallery for family events. Under fives have the Magic Carpet Storytelling at 10:30am and 11:30 am; and five to eleven year old children have a hands-on art workshop running at 11am to 12:20pm and 2am to 3:20pm.

For both activities, meet in the Pigott Education Centre Foyer. The National Gallery is located in Trafalgar Square, WC2N 5DN. Hop on the number 3 bus or 159 to get there.

Have a good weekend!
