Family fun

See what’s on for families at Southbank Centre. Whether you are looking for fun activities, space to play or a bite to eat, there’s plenty to enjoy.

Throughout the year, we have events and activities for all the family, including Rug Rhymes, gamelan sessions, Pram Jam singing and dancing workshops, free social dances, family-friendly shows and and on most Fridays, you can enjoy free music at lunchtime in Royal Festival Hall, plus much more.
