Month of Sundays

– What to do this October

London-LeavesYou’re so busy tracking Junior’s development month by month, you haven’t pencilled in any plans for your own social calendar. Don’t let the month of October roll on without taking note of some of the fabulous family-friendly affairs we’ve found for you.

Take note

Start tomorrow off on a good footing, with the fantastic Children’s Party at soft-play Gambado, all in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. With s special pre-schooler’s party in the morning, and an afternoon tea from 4pm, this is one time you really can have your cake and eat it. 

Someone of Note

For an utterly amazing time, join Clarice Bean and Lauren Child at the V & A this Sunday for an awesome adventure through the V&A.

Make a Mental Note

On 10 and 11 October, take the tot to the family open weekend at the Museum of Transport’s Depot in Acton for action-packed transport tales and railway rhymes.

Swap Notes

With One Little Word, thespians can head to the Lyric in W6 or the Arts Depot in N12 to enjoy this tale of two friends who both want to be captain of the ship. Sounds familiar.

With choices like this, you may be wishing for a month of Sundays.
