We might all be in lockdown but don’t despair; this month London’s coolest activities are available from your living room – from crafts to ceramics and classes to concerts.
This month’s faves include major new exhibitions at Tate Britain, the RA and the V&A, plus more LDF delights than you’ll possibly have time to see.
Kids of all ages will be spoilt for choice when it comes to keeping busy this summer. From immersive exhibitions and family days to urban beaches and museum sleepovers, we’ve rounded up the coolest activities for not-so-tiny Londoners.
This month, get mindful with children’s yoga, a wellbeing weekend, thoughtful art workshops and powerful theatre.
I’m a bit of a yoga novice (read: shit) and had no idea what to do when we were told to “do your own thing” on the mats so I just sort of lay there like a dead fish.
I will say that I’ve been to a lot of other great messy-play sessions that cost a fifth of the price of Artplay, but it was good, and very messy.
From child-led playgroups to parent-focused gigs; lively mummy-and-me yoga classes to calm, childcare-inclusive mothers’ retreats – we give you the definitive, tried-and-tested top 100 activities for little Londoners and their adults.
Helpful staff, aesthetic beauty and a great mix of educational activities – not necessarily the things kids will care about but all so necessary for parents.
