The latest kids' events in London
The School of Noise
These two-hour sessions are a great chance for noisy 7-13 year-olds to channel some decibels into knowledge. They'll use analogue and digital equipment to create cardboard record players, food orchestras, film soundtracks and experimental sound art while finding out more about how sound and noise are created. No musical experience or ability is required. Places can be reserved in advance on The School of Noise's website.
Lambeth Music Festival
This week of concerts at the Southbank Centre celebrates the thousands of musical youngsters living in Lambeth, the centre's home borough. Children aged 5-18 form more than 50 schools will be performing, and all the concerts are free to attend (though guests should book tickets in advance online).
Manic Mechanics and River Tinkers
This free activity day will see families learn all about River Tinkers – curious characters who live on narrow boats and spend their days doing odd jobs and a little fishing. Hear stories about their adventures in the Breaker's Yard garden and make your own River Tinker puppet to go home with. Artist Annie Kelley will run a musical instrument making workshop inspired by the sounds of a working car yard and a 'Manic Mechanics' Easter egg trail will lead intrepid explorers to some delicious prizes. The egg trail (which will run every day from March 28-April 12) costs £1.50 per child and all other acitivites are free.
Handa’s House Crafty Day
To compliment their current show Handa's Surprise, the Little Angel Theatre have turned their studio space into a creative workshop for children aged two and over. The crafty activities are all designed for adults and children to enjoy together, and include a puppet-making activity. The time slots are drop-in but it's suggested you allow at least an hour to get stuck in.
