Lambeth - What's on for the family - November 16th/17th 2013

Another weekend of things to do coming your way! So let’s take a look  

SATURDAY (16th November)

Pop up to Crystal Palace Food Market, on Hayes Lane, for some action storytelling from 11:30 to 12pm. This costs £1 per child. After that, stick around for some free crafting fun with books! The people from Untapped will be around from 12-3pm and the weather is looking good for Saturday!
The buses 3, 417, 249, 432 and 322 take you into the Crystal Palace area. 

Whilst the weather is nice and the autumnal landscape is beautiful, then take the family for a walk. We recommend you check out the Capital Ring Walk. Section 4 is a pleasant walk between Crystal Palace and Streatham. Check out the website to download a map and directions which include facts about the area.

The walk starts at Crystal Palace Train Station.

And staying in Crystal Palace, take the little ones to the Crystal Palace Park Farm, located on Ledrington Road, SE19 2BS. Open from 12 -4pm on Saturday and Sunday, get the kids to practice their animal noises!

If Crystal Palace is too far away, check out Vauxhall City Farm. Little ones love talking to the animals. It’s open on Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 to 4pm. 

To get there catch a 2, 88 or 196. The area is also served by the overground and underground.
As mentioned before, it’s a lot harder to find free or cheap things for the little ones to do as the weather gets colder.

SUNDAY (17th November)

For those who like old vehicles and kids who like buses, visit  Merton Bus garage which is celebrating 100 years!  On this open day, there will a chance to have a look at some heritage buses and ride on one.

The event runs from 10.30am to 4.30pm at Merton bus depot, High Street, London, SW19 1DN and the 57 bus will take you from Streatham to the event.

Take a visit to the Tate Britain and check out Liminal  - a family event every weekend between 11 til 3pm. Go to the information desk for details. Website says it "invites families into a physical, material and social experience of sculpture through touch, interaction and collaboration"

 A number 2 or 88 bus ride across the river takes you to view some art. 

Another regular indoor event is the National Gallery's Sunday Magic Carpet Storytelling. Suitable for under-fives, it runs at 10:30am and repeats at 11:30 am.
The National Gallery is located in Trafalgar Square, WC2N 5DN. Hop on the number 3 bus or 159 to get there.  
Have a good one!
