The afternoon is part of the Imagine Children’s Festival, which is taking place at the Southbank centre from 11th – 24th February.
The event is free to attend and will include Sophie Ward reading extracts from John Boyne’s ‘The Terrible Thing That Happened To Barnaby Brocket’
Children will also have the opportunity to take part in story creation with theatre director Jennifer Lunn, star in a film created by actor, director and writer Rikki Beadle-Blair or join in a laugh-out-loud event with Roald Dahl Funny Prize-winning children’s author and Sir Paul McCartney collaborator Philip Ardagh.
Linda Riley, MD of Square Peg Media and commercial director of the Alternative Parenting Show, said: “It is an honour to be involved with such a ground-breaking event. When I became a mother to my twins 6 years ago I could never imagine that alternative families would be made a central part of a children’s festival.”
