4. The new cocktail trend in London? Birch spirit.

5. Pip & Nut have opened a peanut butter bar at Selfridges. There you can indulge in rye or sourdough bread topped with peanut or almond butter, fresh chilli/lime/coriander, avocado/spiced seeds, grated apple/maple syrup, marinated strawberries…

1. There is lots of fun to be had at the Southbank Centre this weekend: a Lego workshop and a cosy and crafty one or even mythology storytelling on Saturday, classical music for toddlers on Sunday.

2. Join the Somerset House’s Utopian Workshop this weekend – kids are invited to create their own props and design the jazziest Utopian robe they can imagine, before posing in a photo booth..

3. … or go to the other ide of the Thames and make junk puppets from recycled material at the National Theatre.

4. The V&A has pop-up performances for families every Saturday – this week will be an interactive storytelling adventure, inspired by a box of dreams.

5. Try the V&A Museum of Childhood this Saturday – the kids can dress up to find the missing White Queen and solve a few mysteries along the way.
