This weekend south and west Londoners should consider their corners of the city a playground. Whether you want to get physical on a family charity walk, check out Greenford’s festival or tap your toes along to a musical bonanza, Completely London has rounded up great family events for you.
Soak up the summer sun (fingers crossed) at the 2012 SunWalk, held in Battersea Park. Families can choose from three walking distances (kids go for free), and then get stuck into the activities on offer. Both Levi Roots and Peppa Pig promise to make special appearances…
The Greenford Carnival kicks off the Ealing Summer Festival over in Ravenor Park by celebrating music from around the world: samba bands, Bollywood dance groups and dance academies will take to the stage. There’s also sports, food stalls and local crafts on offer. Make sure you make the most of your area!
Whatever the weather, it’ll be worth catching the final showing of Run! A Sports Day Musical at the Polka Theatre in south Wimbledon, an exciting production that’s ideal for 7-11 year olds. Following four students and their teacher Mr Budgie on a special sports day, Run! is all about the importance of getting up and carrying on – and with the Olympics just a month away, there’s never been a better time to get in the sporting mood.
