Majestic Magic

BPMA is participating in a Family Learning Fun Day at Coram Fields, near Russell Square tube station, this Saturday, 22nd September. The theme will be knights, princes, princesses, kings and queens, and it is a free fun day for families with children up to 12.

Attendees will have an opportunity to make fantastic crowns and tiaras, design their own maze and create a wonderful castle. There will be storytelling and music for the little ones and the whole event takes place indoors so you won’t need to worry about the weather spoiling the fun!

The BPMA will be offering two hands-on activities. In “Stamp Champs”, families will have a go at a card-matching quiz – trying to match pictures of British kings and queens to their stamps. In “Glam Stamps”, parents and children will get to practise their art and design skills, using colouring pencils, collage materials and jewels to make their own glamorous stamp to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.

The Majestic Magic Family Fun Day will take place in Coram’s Fields, 93 Guilford Street, London, WC1N 1DN, on Saturday 22nd of September from 1 to 5pm.
