Newham Word Festival starts today and there are quite a few toddler-friendly activities – and they are almost all free (although you do need to book).
The festival lasts a generous 12 days, so if you’re looking for something to do between Monday 6th and Friday 19th November 2017, it’s worth investigating the options.
You’ll find the details here. (Click on ‘families’ for toddler-friendly events)
Here are a few things I picked out:
Story Builders from the Discover Children’s Story Centre will be bringing ‘So much’ by Trish Cooke to life – a lovely story about a family gathering. It’s doing a tour of Newham libraries and community centres. It’s at Stratford library on Friday 17th November, 12.30pm, for example, and it lasts 20 minutes.
There are various music events that sound fun starting on Monday 6th November at Custom House and Canning Town CTC 10-11am – TIMTAM toddlers’ music group. Or on Saturday 11th November, there’s a song building session at Custom House Library at 10.30am.
Anyway, time for you to take a look and see what tickles your fancy.
