The latest kids' events in London
Waterloo's underground theatre festival gains a family-friendly world of fun for 2015 in Mini Vault, with a line-up packed with lively performances to please under-11s. Three weekends of comedy, music, circus and theatre will be joined by heaps of free activities such as crafts, dance and hula hooping. The schedule kicks off with a free circus performance from Pirates of the Carabina, and a family-friendly rave from Big Fish Little Fish will round things off. See the Mini Vault website for more details and to book.
These tours of the Whitechapel Gallery are specially designed for parents with babies and toddlers, allowing them to enjoy art without worrying about the fact their little one is pretending to draw on the floor. A specially chosen curator leads the tour, and refreshments and a chat will follow in the gallery café. Suitable for those caring for children under five.

After a talk and a Q&A little speedsters will create their own Lego racing cars to compete in a friendly competition at the end of the day. The workshop will take place at Sacred Heart Church on Saturday February 28 and at Imperial College London on Saturday March 7. Tickets can be booked online in advance.
