A few half-term highlights
Create and Make
Kids aged five to 11 can become a designer in these informal art workshops inspired by the Design Museum's temporary exhibitions. The monthly events focus on making activities and are free with museum entry. No booking required.
Storytelling and Music Sessions
Fuel your little ones' musical talents good and early at these storytelling sessions for babies and toddlers which encourage interaction between children and their parents or carers through playing music, singing, movement and stories. Each group will learn more about the Royal Albert Hall's rich musical history, with activities designed to develop coordination, self-confidence and awareness.
Young Archaeologists' Club
Children aged eight to 16 can dig a little deeper at these sessions for those interested in the history to be found underground. Learn about the community archeological digs which have taken place at Fulham Palace and what they've revealed, as well as taking part in hands-on sessions led by archaeologists.
Ceramics Family Sessions
The whole family can get their hands dirty in these creative ceramics sessions. Friendly, helpful assistance comes from an artist and a childcare professional, and all materials and tools are provided. Your creations will even be fired so that you can take them home to be admired or used as you wish. Those who are very productive can purchase extra clay for £5.
