Perfect for kids who get excited about buses and trains, this is a Museum they, and you, will want to visit again and again.

Imagine Children’s Festival 2014, Southbank Centre, Monday 10 – Sunday 23 February 2014

Southbank Centre’s Imagine Children’s Festival returns next week, taking over the entire artistic site for two weeks over half term. The festival provides an opportunity for children of all ages and their families to immerse themselves in literature, art, theatre and workshops. Events will be taking place all day every day (more than 100 in total), with many events free to attend. Past experience suggests that the first week is less busy than the second (when more schools have half term), but as a result there are more events to choose from in the second week.
