Family days out this Spring
Dear Subscriber
The listings for the Easter holiday are building, and I'll be adding lots of activities over the next couple of weeks, below I've highlighted some of the events you need to book in advance.   However, before we get  to Easter there are still lots of great things to do in March.
Have you, or a member of your family ever wanted to try out a musical instrument?   Saturday 16th March is 'National learn to play day' - more details below, and Sunday 17th March is the St Patrick's Day parade in London - more info on the Fab Family Days homepage.  Finally, my favourite subject of Olympic Park legacy activities, events confirmed so far are detailed below.
Many thanks, Leonora
Book ahead for Easter events
The National Portrait Gallery have a fantastic, free, 3 day workshop for 14 -21 year olds exploring Victorian costume.  There is an opportunity to make your own costume during the 3 days.

National Learn to play day 16th March
A great opportunity to try out musical instruments! Music shops around the country are hosting activities, and some ask you to book a slot.  Click on the 'shops' tab on the website, and enter your postcode to find your nearest participating shop.   
One downside of their website is that you can't see the instruments that shop specialise in - so you'll have to do some phoning as well!
Olympic Park events 2013
Tours of the Olympic park site are up and running again, but sadly they are no longer free (£15 per person) - passengers travel on a bus around the site to see the transformation of the park that is taking place.
27th & 28th July.  The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will celebrate re-opening by hosting a weekend of arts and music.  There will be musical performances on the promenade, family trails, pop up theatre as well as picnics along the river, plus many more activities still to be announced.
3rd & 4th August.  RideLondon will be a world-class festival of cycling.  It will be a unique closed-road event which will combine a free family ride in central London with the excitement of watching the world’s best professional cyclists race in the RideLondon-Surrey Classic and RideLondon Grand Prix.
