It's the weekend! From fireworks to Jazz there's something for everyone!

There's a whole range of different events on this weekend to enjoy with the kids- here's our pick...

Saturday
The annual Lord Mayor's Show takes place this Saturday from 11am. The popular procession, based on tradition dating back 800 years, will feature 6000 participants. Check out the website for up to date route information. Suitable for all ages.


And if you didn't get enough fireworks last weekend, then head to The Lord Mayor's Fireworks which begins on the Thames at 5pm. The display includes more than half a tonne of giant fireworks, some of which shoot over 600ft into the sky before exploding, and takes a team of eight pyrotechnicians two days to set it all up. It's one of London's most spectacular annual displays, and you'll be able to see the fireworks for miles, but for the best view of all head down to Victoria Embankment. Suitable for all ages.

Roll Up Roll Up to Lauderdale House for Charlie the Clown’s Circus Stars - a morning of clowning, juggling, human cannon balls and favourite circus songs. The event takes place 10:00 to 10:45 and is suitable for children aged 2 to 7.

For something rather unusual head to The Bank of England Museum where to celebrate the Lord Mayor's Show face painters bring the characters from 'The Wind in the Willows' to life! 11:00am - 5:00pm. Suitable for all ages.

The Lyric, Hammersmith, is showing “Remember the Umbrella" at 11am & 1pm. Join Brolly in her adventure through a world of umbrellas, with tales of sea, sand and a visit to the moon. All brought to life through live music, song and gentle joining in. There is also Messy Play at 12 and 2pm: £5. Ages: 3 - 7.

The kids club at the Phoenix Cinema is screening Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London. Activities start at 11, with the screening at 12. For children 5-10.

Chatterbooks Reading Group rakes place at Hornsey Library, Haringey Park, N8 9JA from 2-3pm.

The RAF Museum is hosting a “Lest we forget” event where Children can decorate a petal to add to the poppy collage. Add a ‘plaque’ to our Wall of Remembrance.

And if you fancy getting Christmassy then head to Covent Garden where you can go Reindeer petting in the Piazza!
