Children: Land of Kids festival this bank holiday Monday

We love Land of Kings, the annual Dalston-fest of music, feasts, games, cinema and other unexpected larks, so this bank holiday Monday, we are definitely taking our sprogs to this new spin-off festival, Land of Kids, aimed at 2 – 12 year olds. The festival will take place in various indoor venues and outdoor spaces around Dalston's Ashwin Street – and is packed with really great sounding events. Fancy creating magic shoes, making a pearly hat, constructing a cardboard kingdom, dancing in a ceilidh, celebrating an un-birthday with a Mad Hatter, customising your scooter, making your own drums (and playing them too), and getting your nails painted with a design created especially for you? That's just a few of the things on offer. As well as all that, there will be workshops, a street feast, face painting, a supervised soft play area for under 3s, music and jamborees, and various other treats, including a storytelling adventure workshop by Punchdrunk Enrichment (the kids' arm of the amazing interactive theatre company Punchdrunk). This latter event is bound to be especially popular, so if you want a spot make sure you get there as early as possible and put your name down. It's one of the few events with limited places. Otherwise, you don't need to book for individual events or activities. Instead, you get a wristband when you purchase your ticket, which gives you access to everything, so the only things you need pay for are food and drink. The tough bit is going to be choosing what to do first. And second. And third.
