Children: What to Do This Weekend in London. and Beyond


Spencer, Nikki, The Independent (London, England)


Blackheath Fireworks

Blackheath, London SE3, today, from 6.30pm, firework display 8pm, free

Many local authorities are holding their Bonfire Night celebrations tonight. The fireworks at Blackheath always have a good "wow" factor, plus they're free (but don't attempt to drive, as the area is usually gridlocked). Other firework displays include Battersea Park (7.30pm, pounds 3), Barking (from 5pm, adults pounds 4, children pounds 1) and Primrose Hill (7pm, free but donations to charity). For full details, visit the London Tourist Board's website at www.visitlondon.com.

Elmer the Elephant

Watermans, High Street, Brentford TW8 (020-8232 1010) tomorrow, 3pm, pounds 6, family pounds 22 On wet and windy winter weekends, children's theatre is a godsend for parents - so it's good news that there will be a show at Watermans every Sunday until Christmas. This week's musical production is based on David Mckee's ever-popular patchwork elephant, and is suitable for three- to seven-year-olds. Next weekend it's Gingerbread, a play about the magic of cooking.

Artmixx

Tate Modern, Bankside, London SE1 (020-7887 8888) today, 11am, free, booking essential

The Tate is worth a visit at the moment just to see the huge Anish Kapoor installation, but there are also a range of activities for families every weekend, including Artmixx, where children who are accompanied by an adult get to explore the gallery with an artist and take part in different activities.
