What's on this February half-term

The first half-term of 2016 is nearly here. To celebrate, there are a variety of family-friendly events taking place right on your doorstep.

As part of the British Museum’s half-term events for families, join in the fun with The Enormous Crocodile. Work together as a family to design your own story sack to take home and create fun activities to help your child enjoy reading. Drop in to the Great Court East to take part in this free activity between 11am to 4pm on Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 February.

On Wednesday 17 February, children aged four to 10 are invited to join ZUMBA KIDS, a class that fuses fitness, entertainment and culture. The classes run every Wednesday and price is £6 per session, or £26 for five sessions.

Why not take your kids swimming, with sessions for as little as £1? Or join one of the play schemes at a range of locations across the borough and keep the kids entertained with indoor and outdoor activities including arts and crafts, gym games, sports, cooking and gardening. Times and prices vary.

Take the kids along to The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology from Wednesday 18 to Friday 19 February for a chance to find out more about the ancient Egyptian Amarna Palace. The event is free and includes the opportunity to make and take home your own tile or wall hanging based on the palace pavements.

Meet reckless boys, rebellious girls and beastly babies (and a scary parent or two) in a joint event with Keats House and the Keats Community Library for World Book Week. Drop in for free to Family Day: There Was A Naughty Boy on Sunday 21 February at 1pm.
