This month is set be a busy one: I have least one close friend or family member’s birthday each week, including my very own little superstar’s 3rd birthday and my brother’s 30th. It’s also the beginning of spring which means we can all get outside and start getting some much needed fresh air!
1. Baby Animals at Bocketts Farm, Leatherhead
Throughout the month of March, Bockett’s Farm will have lots of baby animals on the farm, including baby chicks, ducklings and lambs. There is a whole daily schedule of events including feeding times, pig races, animal handling and tractor rides and plenty of play areas, both inside and out. This is a fantastic day out for the whole family and if you’re really lucky- you might even see a lamb being born!
For more information visit Bocketts Farm’s website here.
2. I Believe in Unicorns at the Polka Theatre, Wimbledon
This ones for the slightly older children (6-12 years), but not to be missed. Michael Morpugo, best known for his incredible success with War Horse, tells the story of Tomas, the adventurous kid who gets himself into trouble with the Unicorn Lady.
Tickets can be booked at the Polka Theatre website here, but hurry, this will sell out quickly!
3. Big Fish Little Fish at London Electronic Arts Festival, Tobacco Dock
6th March 3.30-5.30pm
My favourite events company take over a room at the LEAF festival this Friday- and what’s special about these 1 hour sessions is that kids will get to play around with synthesisers and interactive projections. For more information and to book tickets, visit BFLF Facebook page here.
