Want to know what we’re up to this week? Here’s a peek: First up, a special art exhibition for the whole family to enjoy: The Magical Kingdom of Illustration. Opening on Saturday and showcasing originals artwork from some of the most famous children’s books of all time, expect illustrations from classics like Where the Wild Things Are and Alice in Wonderland, as well as today’s hits like Elmer the Elephant.
So – it’s Clockenflap this weekend, but one act we’re not going to miss is actually for the kiddos: Nick Cope (former frontman for the UK indie band the Candyskins) is performing his fun family-friendly songs on Friday. Oh, if only all music for the under fives was made by indie-pop geniuses. Then on Sunday we’re off to PLAY’S free poetry writing workshop for kids 6-16 – one child’s poem will be performed at the PLAY! Carnival of the Zodiac concert in January at the HK Academy for Performing Arts. Finally, plan ahead and sign up for next week’s informative Literacy Training Workshop for parents to help you child’s reading skills. Phew!
