Still wondering what to do with your kids, siblings, nieces, nephews, god-children or other young people looking to you for entertainment during half term? Maybe our tickets site can help with some excellently fun London distractions.
The Railway Children
A classic that'll keep mum, dad and auntie Sue as happy as the younger generations, the classic book can be seen on stage in King's Cross. The Olivier Award-winning show is staged around a real train track.
The Magic Cavern
Wow the family with all manner of magical tomfoolery in The Magic Cavern at Barons Court Theatre in Kensington. The intimate venue hosts an illusion show suitable for those age 6+.
Overwhelmed by the choice of shows at this year's Vault Festival? JunNk Live is rubbish — literally. The high energy four-man performance uses nothing but rubbish to create a variety show with comedy, percussion music and a capella singing. The 55-minute running time is ideal for little fidgets too.
Looking to burn off excess energy? Ice skating's for life, not just for Christmas. Get out in the fresh air and take a twirl around Broadgate Ice Rink, overlooking Liverpool Street Station. Sequins optional.
Oh help! Oh no! It's a Gruffalo! If this is a familiar refrain in your household, see the children's books come to life on stage at the Lyric Theatre. Mouse leads the musical adaptation, with Owl, Fox and Snake joining in on the route to meet the terrifying Gruffalo.
Matilda the Musical
What better time to see the Roald Dahl's tale brought to life than on the centenary of the author's birth? Matilda the Musical sees Trunchbull, Miss Honey and all the other characters thrown together on stage by the Royal Shakespeare Company.
The Lion King
It's the Ciiiiiircle of Life at the Phoenix Artist Club in Soho, as Disney's The Lion King is screened. Tickets also include a treat box. It's what weekends were made for.
Cirque Du Soleil
The world famous Cirque Du Soleil is back in the regal setting of the Royal Albert Hall. The show is set on a mysterious island governed by goddesses, and the story is told through aerial stunts, teeterboard tricks, waterbowl performances and more.
Magic Lantern Festival
Be wowed by the scale and beauty of the Magic Lantern Festival at Chiswick House Gardens. It's the UK's first Chinese Lantern Festival, with everything from flowers and giraffes to pandas and pagodas illuminated for the world to see. Kids and the young at heart will be blown away.
Royal Albert Hall Secret History Tour
For those with more interest in the behind-the-scenes goings on at London's theatres, the secret history tour of the Royal Albert Hall visits parts of the building usually off-limits to the public. Hear stories of Londoners who have frequented the venue, from Winston Churchill to the Krays.
