4 – 19 APR 2020

Come to Southbank Centre this Easter for egg-cellent shows and free family fun.

In Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales, meet and giggle along with a whole host of colourful characters from beloved books by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, including Tiddler, Monkey Puzzle, The Smartest Giant in Town and A Squash and a Squeeze.

Big Up! is the perfect show for little people who want to be big, and big people who just might have forgotten how to play. And at Comedy Club 4 Kids, watch the best stand-ups around do their thing for a family audience – without the rude bits.

For babies and young audiences with sensory needs, intotheclouds is a highly visual experience. Plus, Soundpit has been extended, so kids big and small can play in our giant musical sandpits this Easter break.

Check out our basketloads of free events – get dancing at Pedal Power Disco and Family Folk Club, create your own plant pots out of clay at ClayTime, and enjoy the nature around us on our Family Tree Trail.
