In The Know: Ideas for the Easter holidays!
The first day of spring is almost here! It also happens to be #InternationalDayofHappiness on Monday, so we thought we’d bring you some fun, entertaining ideas for activities that are sure to bring happiness to your child during the upcoming Easter holidays.
Stars and their Secrets – The Royal Observatory Greenwich
Is your child aged 11+ and interested in space and astronomy? If so, this event that runs on Thursday 20th April could certainly be an ideal way to spend part of the Easter holidays! Your child will first be astounded by spectacular stellar phenomena in the planetarium show, followed by a discussion led by a panel of experts. It’s a great way to explore how fields of study connect and hear what ground-breaking research is on the cosmic horizon. Read more on their website.
Create! Theatre design & digital tools workshop – The V&A Museum
This is an opportunity for young people aged 13-15, where your child could work with imaginative designer Charlie Cridlan and explore their costume and set design talents. They would get the chance to develop their digital drawing skills and learn how to design settings and clothes to tell a story. The workshop runs from 11am-4pm on Saturday 22nd April, and tickets are limited so book a ticket early on the website to avoid disappointment!
