It’s time for the children to start running things as the Southbank Centre is taken over for the Imagine Children’s Festival.
Transformed by children for children, the jamboree features everything from dance and theatre to books and art. Join some of the leading authors from children’s literature as they get involved with the fun and games
Everyone who toddles along is encouraged to have a rummage in the dressing up box and arrive in their finest themed costume, whether it’s for Topsy-Turvy Day (clothes on backwards) or Call of the Wild Day (dress as your favourite plant or creature).
Raucous, entertaining and informative, there’s guaranteed to be something here to keep the most restless of youngsters happily occupied.
Among the 100 plus events to enjoy are the following highlights:
- A sleepover in the Royal Festival Hall
- Talks from classic children's authors and illustrators such as Sir Quentin Blake and Jacqueline Wilson.
- The Great Enormo, an introduction to classical music with the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain
