Like most of our journeys, we come across events in London unexpectedly. This action packed Festival is one of them.
Imagine children’s festival, supported by The Book People, is currently taking place at the Royal Festival Hall at London’s Southbank just in time for the half term. And guess what? It’s taken over Festival hall! Can you imagine this happening? It runs every February for children to have a voice in the form of Art, culture, performances, free events and workshops.
Imagine has been advocated by artists, theatre companies, authors and many more, created for children of all ages and encouraging them to have their own input. The aim is to encourage young people to think about their culture and creativity and to share their ideas with friends and family.
Take a look at their collage, which just goes to show that children from varying backgrounds have a way of expressing themselves through creativity. The collage depicts the city in which they are living in today.
What to look out for at Imagine children’s festival:
Playing Card Art
Guess How much I Love You Hare
Imagine Photo Studios
Land of bread and butterflies
Glitter box Face painting
Early Years Vintage Library
Eat, Drink and Shop
Also, look out for the line up of artists, comic David O’Doherty and author Anthony Horowitz. Ali Sparkes and Lauren Child will also be present. Be excited this half term!
Oh! Don’t tell the kids yet because they are likely to see Charlie and Lola’s Best Bested Play and a celebration of Alice in Wonderland’s 150th birthday.
Creativity is a positive way of engaging children and allowing them to explore world they live in by expressing their thoughts and emotions. There is so much fun for those little fingers but no room for boredom this half term.
Oh, how fun. Being the former school teacher that I am, I have to say I love this. Anytime we can encourage a child’s creativity is a good thing. I know I would love to be there for this but alas I live way to far away.
Encouraging children’s creativity is a plus. Shame you’re not near London, but perhaps there are similar events near you.
What a fantastic event! Encouraging kids to be creative is SO essential…and it gets them away from those computer screens! I am all for that!
Events like this keeps children occupied and yes, away from those screens. Hope to see more children’s festivals in the future!
What’ an awesome event! Wow!
The event was amazing and engaging for children!
