Your weekly Friday Five edit is here!
From audio guided walks, virtual theatre performances and doing our bit to share and support a worthy cause. We’ve a Friday Five roundup for the coolest families in town. One last request from us, remember to pause for a moment and enjoy the little things this weekend. Have a super weekend from all at City Kids HQ.
1. WE COVER THE UNIVERSE ONLINE AT THE SOUTHBANK CENTRE
Take your tots on a journey to a world full of wonder with the interactive sensory show We Cover the Universe, online at the Southbank Centre.
2. FAMILY STORYWALK WEEKEND FROM RICH MIX
Take an audio Family StoryWalk around the East End and experience an alternative London full of giants, dragons and wizards.
The two self-guided walks from Rich Mix arts centre will take place on Saturday April 10th and Sunday April 11th. On Saturday, the walk is based on The Ring of Joy by Vanessa Woolf, which leads you around Shoreditch and transports you to China to find a magic ring.
3. CHICKENSHED’S RAPUNZEL ONLINE STREAM
Get ready for Rapunzel as you’ve never seen her before, with Chickenshed’s dramatic retelling of the classic story.
Rapunzel doesn’t remember much about her life before she was locked in the tower. All she knows is that she longs to be free. As she meets the fantastical creatures in the woods that surround her prison, she learns that her true strength comes from within, not from her long hair.
4. HUNDREDS AND THOUSANDS BY LIZ WEST IN GREENWICH PENINSULA
Take a walk along a technicolour walkway with the Hundreds and Thousands art installation in Greenwich.
Experience a kaleidoscope of colour at the Tide, the elevated riverside trail on Greenwich Peninsula. The walkway has been transformed by British artist Liz West. She used a series of coloured panels to wrap 700m of glass balustrades along the trail.
5. TAKE A FEW MINS OUT TO APPRECIATE THE LITTLE THINGS.
We’d like to take this opportunity to use our platform to support the gofundme set up for Richard Okorogheye. If you’d like to help his family, whether it’s sharing among your circles or sparing a donation of any size, follow our link here.
