Lord Mayor's Show Family Festival

Family enjoying free workshop activities

A fun, interactive and free family festival to celebrate the City and the Lord Mayor's Show.

Saturday 9 November, 12 - 4pm, Museum of London

Continue the fun of the Lord Mayor's Show with an afternoon packed full of activities to explore fantastic things about London.

This year the theme for our activities is 'The London that never was'. Come and explore stories of London - past, present and future - that will change how you view the city forever!

There are lots of friends from over the City of London and creative partners all getting involved. Discover the history of Salters' Hall and help create a new building, then chat to Tower Bridge about the plans for the bridge which were never realised. Settle in for a story about London's 'Eiffel Tower' with Museum of London storytellers or chill out with some beastly books and hear about London's wild side with Culture Mile.

There will also be a whole host of family friendly tours throughout the day, from the museum to Paternoster Square, and to the City Centre, to allow you to make the most of the City of London during your day.

With plenty of free things for all ages, everyone can continue revelling in the festive atmosphere.
