LAB LIFE: REALITY IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ROLLS-ROYCE

Imagination Lab at The Workshop, Lambeth High Street SE1 – www.ioi.london
Imagination Lab presents – ‘lab life: reality in partnership with Rolls-Royce’ – family workshops to inspire young minds.

At the Imagination Lab we offer young people opportunities to experiment, innovate and create using a range of tools to develop new ideas. Our ‘lab life’ family events provide a series of half-day workshops where families can explore, tinker and create together.

The theme of ‘reality’ will feature facilitated activities with a focus on design, mechanics and engineering, as well as new technologies including augmented and virtual reality. Our Imagination Lab on London’s Albert Embankment will be transformed into three zones which invite children to tinker and engineer, design and build and to explore the future.

This is an interactive event ideal for children aged 5 – 12 and their accompanying parents and carers.

MUM GOES FREE FOR MOTHER’S DAY

WWT London Wetland Centre – www.wwt.org.uk
Spring is the ideal time to visit WWT London Wetland Centre, with the flowers beginning to bloom and ducklings waddling after their mother. So treat your own mum to a relaxing day out with a walk to watch the wildlife flitting over our gardens and ponds, followed by refreshments in our Water’s Edge Café. Join our wardens for feeding time with the otters, and see colourful water birds from around the world.

The sand martins will be back from Africa and starting to build a nest for their own little ones, and ducklings will be chasing after their mum like wind-up balls of fluff!
Your mum comes in free of charge when accompanied by a paying child or adult. Just quote ‘Mother’s Day’ at admissions.

And while you’re here, why not treat your mum to a delicious Prosecco Afternoon Tea for Two:
2 glasses of chilled Prosecco
