    Family fun

    Get ready for a world of fun for all the family

    Winter Festival is here bringing plenty of fun and unmissable, inspirational events for the whole family.

    Come together this winter for spellbinding shows, glorious music and choirs, luminous art, festive family fun and our wondrous Winter Market and pop-ups. Southbank Centre is here to bring you sparkling moments of family joy over the festive period.

    In a show based on Sophie Anderson’s much-loved novel, follow Marinka, a young girl trying to find her feet in The House with Chicken Legs (Wed 13 – Sat 30 Dec), featuring puppets, projection and live music. 

    Little ones will also love Bluey’s Big Play (Wed 20 Dec – Sun 7 Jan) as the playful Blue Heeler puppy is brought to life in a brand-new theatrical adaptation of the smash-hit children’s TV show. Featuring brilliantly created puppets, this UK premiere  is Bluey as you’ve never seen it before.

    Start your family’s New Year celebrations early at our free daytime party Kids’ Countdown with Len Blanco (Sun 31 Dec). Then, join London’s most radical and vivacious ceilidh band, the Ceilidh Liberation Front, and kick the new year off with dancing (Mon 1 Jan).

    Looking ahead to February half-term, Imagine Children's Festival returns with over 100 events and plenty of free family fun.
