things to do with kids in half term

POSTED 07 February 2013 IN Community

If you’re looking for things to do with the kids in half-term, we’ve got some great ideas to keep them entertained, and a way for you to treat yourself at the same time. We’ve found the best kids’ events that lie closest to our branches so that, when they need refuelling, you can march them the nearest Feng Sushi where your kids can enjoy our children’s menu and bento boxes. You get sushi, the kids are kept entertained and everybody’s happy.

The King’s Coffee at Kensington Palace (16-24 Feb)
Kensington Palace is holding a host of activities themed around 17th century Royals, William and Mary. As well as mosaic-making and creating paper tulips, kids can learn about the trade between the Dutch and British Empires that brought in chocolate, coffee and tea. Take a stroll across Kensington Gardens before popping in for free sushi for the kids at our Kensington Branch.

The South Bank’s Imagine Children’s Festival (11-24 Feb)
Two weeks of entertainment created by children for children. There will be appearance by favourite authors, including Anthony Horowitz, Cathy Cassidy and Simon Mayo, as well as entertainers like David Walliams. There’ll be plays, literature ‘slams’ and a host of ideas to get those brain cells buzzing. And Feng Sushi South Bank branch is doing kids eat for free and you can enter to win a kids party!

‘Liar, Liar’ at the Unicorn Theatre (until Mar 6)
Tackling the sort of issues that youngsters have to deal with, such as secrecy and bullying, playwright EV Crowe has come up with Liar, Liar, a play for 13 to 16-year-olds that features Grace, a young girl who’s finding life rather difficult. After you’ve immersed yourself in Grace’s world, lighten things up with a trip to our Borough Branch.

Camden Arts Centre
There’s always plenty to entertain the youngsters at the Camden Arts Centre and over the half-term is no exception. The Taking Root project uses the outdoor space for young ones to learn through artist-led activities, focusing on the environment.  ‘Make and Do’ activities on Sunday afternoons encourage older participants to create hand-made flip books and create animations. All that activity deserves a sushi treat at nearby Feng Sushi West Hampstead.
