Just where, oh where has this academic year gone? It’s already July and here in the UK, schools are about to break up for summer. Then it’ll be Autumn, bringing the anniversary of #CulturedKids…..
In the meantime, we’ll be heading off to Paris, Wales, Scotland and Oslo for the summer. No doubt there will be plenty of visits to castles and museums to report when we get back, but in the meantime, I wanted to share with you a theatre performance that’s at the Vaults, in London, until September 3rd. Adventures in Wonderland is an immersive show for 5-10 year olds and their families. It’s possibly the best children’s performance I’e ever seen, and you can read more about it my #CulturedKids post for July.
It was a delight to have Catherine from Cultural Wednesdays join me as #CulturedKids co-host. June was her first month, and there were some beautifully written posts. Catherine has selected her own favourites, so do head over to her blog to have a look. Here are mine.
Lou Messugo wrote about 20 of France’s 42 UNESCO World Heritage sites. Impressively, she has visited all 20. Her post is full of evocative names, like Versailles, the Cathedral of Notre Dame, Carcasonne and the hillsides of Champagne. It’s strengthened my resolve to explore even more of the country.
Family Travel Times went to Pembroke Castle, in Wales. With a 5m-thick wall, this castle withstood many attacks, and it stands proud to this day. I’m hoping we’ll be able to visit this summer.
Another blogger to brave a battleground was the mummysphere. She took her family to Chiltern Open Air Museum, in Buckinghamshire, UK, and watched some Brittania Roman Gladiators go through their paces.
What have you been up to this month? Have you visited any museums, galleries, historic places or theatre shows? Please do link up your posts in the July linky below. We’ll be looking out for images shared on Instagram using #CulturedKids – and if you’d like an invitation to pin to the #CulturedKids Pinterest Board, let us know (we’ll be pinning all your posts there anyway).
Here’s how it works:
