London hosts a wealth of arts, music and cultural events aimed at families and young people, and some of these might be of interest to the THAMES friends community. Here we list a few that are happening now and in the near future. If you know of an event, performance or activity, that might be interesting to other THAMES friends, then let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Perhaps you know of a musical event? Or one connected to some other area of the arts? Then tell us about it and we’ll try and include it in a future posting.
