Easter at the Southbank Centre

Easter at the Southbank Centre

From 6th to 22nd April, the Southbank Centre is being transformed into a hub of free family fun. From top quality family shows to multi-sensory experiences for children, come along and see what everyone is talking about!

There are so many events to choose from, you’ll find it hard to pick! Enjoy the boundless energy and catchy songs in family show Tabby McTat, based on the popular book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler (6th to 13th April); try out your dance moves in a Saturday morning boogie with Boogie Monsters, or learn some hip-hop steps in Afro Dance Party with HomeBros; join in a family ceilidh, or dance to eleven-piece band Bring Your Own Brass; or perhaps simply enjoy some light refreshment overlooking the Thames.

For younger visitors, there are exceptional interactive experiences. Why not dive into the creative, sensory play of Soundpit? This giant sandpit shows you what movement sounds like, and what sound feels like: as you move your hands through the sand, or even walk across it, you create different sounds and images, composing a unique soundtrack to your own movements. For even younger visitors, make sure to drop into Kaleidoscope – a colourful, immersive experience inspired by research demonstrating how a baby’s sense of sight develops.

A single tube ride away – door-to-door in twenty minutes – the Mercure Paddington provides the perfect resting place after a hectic day of family fun!
