Children’s Literary Festival Launches At Battersea Power Station for Half Term

Plan a family visit to Battersea Power Station and take part in a whole host of fun literary activities for children as well as exploring the full range of restaurants, bars and shops at Circus West Village during February 12th - 14th.

Storystock, the travelling circus of stories, is bringing a programme of family literary fun to Circus West Village, Battersea Power Station, this half term.

From the 12th - 14th February, primary school aged children will be entertained with live-literature shows, immersive workshops, performances and interactive storytelling sessions. The activities will be taking place at The Village Hall, a new community arts and cultural venue at Circus West Village, the first chapter in the regeneration of Battersea Power Station.

Special guest appearances include legendary children’s author and illustrator Judith Kerr, who will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Tiger Who Came To Tea on 13th February with a live story telling performance, followed by a Q&A.

There are workshops on drawing and creative writing, the mad world of Dr Seuss, and a host of other things to enchant children.

Families can take the time to explore Circus West Village together and enjoy lunch or a drink overlooking The Thames. Parents can also leave their children to be entertained at one of the fantastic workshops and visit one of the many restaurants, take a break with a coffee at The CoffeeWorks Project, go spinning at Boom Cycle, pop into The Battersea General Store or explore the Battersea Power Station Design Store for gifts and homeware.
