Things to do in London with kids this weekend: 2-3 November

How is it November already? Remember, remember…. wait, what was I meant to remember? Ah yes it’s the big weekend for fireworks and bonfire night displays in London.

Diwali Celebration Trafalgar Square

Free family-frienldy festival chock full of live music, dance performances, street food and different activity zones.

When: 3 Nov; 1pm-7pm
Where: Trafalgar Square
Ages: all
Cost: free

Reach at Jacksons Lane Theatre

At this children’s theatre performance you’ll watch a jumping, climbing and swinging exploration of the utmost importance. Cookie hunting!

Bauhaus Baby Ballroom at Whitechapel Gallery

Celebrate 100 years of Bauhaus with music, art, dancing making and mayhem. Expect geometric mobiles, architectural collage, abstract costume creation and bauhaus badges. Refresh yourselves with mocktails; they’ll be serving a Walter Gropius Glass or a Kandinsky Mix.

Where: Whitechapel Gallery, 77-82 Whitechapel High St, E1 7QX

Regent Street Motor Show

First of all your kids will think it’s cool that Regent Street is closed to moving traffic for an event. Then they’ll probably be entertained by it being turned into a car show complete with family friendly activities. Predicted highlights: driving a kid kart around a track and watching West End Kids perform.
When: 2 Nov; 10.30am-4pm
Where: Regent Street
Ages: all
Cost: free
