Attractions around the UK are hosting themed half-term activities, including Vikings in York, storytelling in Cornwall and the science of light in Winchester
There is a Nordic theme to this year’s Imagine at the Royal Festival Hall, in keeping with the wider Southbank Centre’s year-long look at the region’s art and culture, Nordic Matters. There will be performances by Hevisaurus, a Finnish dinosaur heavy metal band for children, and Oddjob, a Swedish jazz group also aimed at young people. There is a Swedish baby rave, an immersive Moominland exhibition, a free pedal-powered screening of The Little Mermaid, and Finnish circus for babies. Non-Nordic events include readings by Julian Clary, Chris Hoy and other children’s authors, and lots more theatre, dance, music and installations.
