Here in the UK, frost is on the ground and we’re nearing the end of the year. This is the time when arts turn festive, so I’m looking forward to reading about your wintertime cultural fun in this #CulturedKids December link-up. As for us, so far we’ve enjoyed an ice-skating session at the historic Tower of London, and a trip to see the Snowman at Sadler’s Wells’ Peacock Theatre – now into its 19th consecutive year, and a bit of a London Christmas staple. The tree’s going up this weekend, and we’re hosting a drinks and nibbles session for old friends. Can’t wait.
There were some beautiful festive posts last month on #CulturedKids. Megan from Truly Madly Kids watched the Nutcracker performed on ice, at Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland, which was much appreciated by her family (look at those smiles!).
HexMum went to see the Northern Ballet’s performance of Beauty and the Beast, at the Theatre Royal Norwich.
And – not festive exactly, but sounding utterly marvellous, and prompting ideas for Christmas book-buying, there was Me and My Shadow, who heard David Walliams talk live on stage about his latest book, The Midnight Gang.
The #CulturedKids linky will stay open until Thursday 5 January, so do pop by and add any posts you write over the holiday season. Of course, not everyone celebrates Christmas, and you might have written about a non-Christmas event, so please do join in with any old or new posts on theatre, museums, galleries, art, historic places…..Just don’t forget to add the #CulturedKids badge, or link back to the Pigeon Pair and Me.
See you on the other side, in 2017!
