North London Mums' Weekend Round-Up 29 and 30 June 2013

There's a really good mix of events on this weekend, including baby raves, garden parties, music and wildlife. But we are MOST excited about "Going on a Bear Hunt" right here in North Finchley...
We're Going on a Bear Hunt...at the Arts Depot


All weekend

For a real treat head to the Arts Depot for a performance of "We're Going on a Bear Hunt", with performances on Saturday and Sunday (noon and 3pm). Adapted from the picture book written by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury. Join our intrepid adventurers on their quest to find a bear; as they wade through the gigantic swishy swashy grass, the splishy splashy river and the thick oozy squelchy mud! Expect catchy songs, interactive scenes and plenty of hands-on adventure - plus a few special surprises! For children aged 3+. 

This weekend is the Waterloo Festival 2013. The  Festival celebrates Waterloo and its rich diversity past and present. There is a broad ranging programme including  a community fĂȘte on Sunday promising fun for all ages with stalls, face painting, BBQ, Tug of war and Bouncy Castle.

Fun for all ages! To view the full list of events click Waterloo Festival Brochure.
