Book Now For These Kids Christmas Events

Yes, yes I said that word. I am not going to apologise as I am actually doing you a favour. If you want to get seats together, get the highly sort after matinee and so on, you need to book these events BEFORE half term. So many times I have got to the party late (usually on the day as my friends are heading to the show/theatre/musical/concert (delete accordingly) and it’s not going to happen this year.

So, what’s on my hit list…

Christmas Lights at Kew 

22nd November – 5th January

Never been, everyone raves about it.  ‘As twilight falls, the magic begins…’ Expect a beautiful walk through lit woodland and a magical sucrose at the end!’

After Dark at Chiswick House

Every Thursday – Sunday 22nd November – 30th December

In it’s infancy but following on from the success of other successful light installations, this nighttime walk is a great option with lit up sculptures and a soundtrack to accompany your walk.

Start the festive season in style with this West End family extravaganza featuring stars of West End and Broadway performing songs and carols alongside our fabulous orchestra and gospel choir, Sing Gospel.

Awful Auntie at the Bloombsury Theatre

If his shows are as good as his books, I think the 7-11 crowd will love this!

Lapland UK

17th November – 24th December

The closest we will get to the real Lapland – this looks pretty good through the eyes of a little one.
