For this post I have chosen
THE SOUTH BANK –
a beautiful building which you’ll find by the River Thames just by the London Eye! The South Bank is a building full of artists who perform for kids and grown-ups. Sometimes you have to pay -sometimes you don’t.. and yes, some events are FREE ….which I like very much! I love the foyer in particular as it is a place where you can play, relax and have fun! Sometimes you can listen to music and see people dancing there! The 9th of Feb starts the ‘Imagine Children’s Festival’
which will last until the 22nd of February.
Among the many events don’t miss (Tuesday February 3, 2015 South Bank) the ON READING AND
