5 things to do in London this weekend with kids

Are you looking for some things to do in London this weekend with kids? We’ve rounded up a great list of ideas to bring a little zing to your weekend. Enjoy!

One Duck Down: Vault Festival Performance

Jam packed with music, clowning and puppetry; it teaches all ages the importance of looking after our ocean. One Duck Down’s set and props are recycled from the lost and found of rubbish both on land and at sea, all to create one eco-friendly family frolic.

When: 9-10 March; 3.10pm
