What’s On: London Baby, Toddler and Family Events This Week

Royal Opera House Family Sundays

Many of you are likely to be given a child-free Mothering Sunday of pampering and sophisticated conversations with adults.  For the rest of us, take the kids to Covent Garden and either let them explore the Transport Museum or head over to the Royal Opera House for some great activities; after, Sophie’s Steakhouse Covent Garden is treating Mums to a free meal this Sunday (normally the kids eat free). 

Monkey Music Chelsea

Monkey Music Chelsea’s Summer Term is soon to start, make sure that you don’t miss your chance for a place as the Summer Term is rapidly filling.  If you are new to Monkey Music, be sure to book for a complimentary session and experience the fun for yourself.  Join the hundreds of Chelsea mums and babies who come week in and week out for Monkey Music’s specialist music curriculum.  For a complimentary lesson or to book your place, ring Caroline or Jayne at 02087679827 or email Chelsea.westminster@monkeymusic.co.uk
