Take, for instance, the Barbopolis, where the object is to construct the eponymous city of the future by building skyscrapers constructed from slices of bread, marshmallows, a cheese triangle and more (unwanted materials to be scoffed at a later date). Sounds great, but it's for kids! Hey, Barbican — some adults are frustrated architects too, you know. Luckily they've put on an second run at 7pm on the Saturday, which might attract a more mature (though not necessarily more skillful) crowd.
Do Something Different makes full use of the Barbican's ample space, which is split up into different zones: Eat, Move, Play, Make, Craft, Watch, and Noise (the latter of which, including South Asian songs and percussion workshops, is held on the fourth floor, ironically the location of Cinemas 2 and 3 which are being closed down due to their inadequate soundproofing). The oft-closed Conservatory will host a concert for the under-5s by the LSO and readings by the Barbican Young Poets, while those interested in picking up a new groove stylee could try out the Bollywood Dance class or the Rajasthani Folk Dance.
