Is everyone feeling well rested after a lazy long Easter weekend? We hope the blues of going back to work haven’t been too blue, and to cheer you all up, we have had a scout around to find some fun things going on in London this month for you and your family to enjoy!



Who doesn’t love a magical fairytale?! Recently released, this film has been hugely popular with children over the Easter holidays. If you haven’t yet seen this – you must! A moral strung through the film is the beautiful reminder to always have courage and be kind.
