ArchiKids: a Family Festival of Architecture

If flying kites between skyscrapers 
and building a four-metre Lego Gherkin inside the Gherkin 
sounds intriguing & entertaining,  
then save the weekend of 26/27 July 
for lots of creative fun.

Archikids Festival

Archikids is an architecture festival   
full of fun and free activities 
that aim to encourage little Londoners 
to explore and interact with their city 
through play and creativity. 

Architects, artists, engineers, designers, students and city workers, 
in association with Open-City's education team,  
run fabulous activities, 
all centred around four festival hubs 
across the City of London's Square Mile.

Archikids Activities 

The free activities, aimed at children aged 5-11,  
are utterly brilliant 
{younger/older children are welcome, of course}. 

Check some of them: 
building a lego Gherkin replica inside the Gherkin, 
attending a city planning masterclass for mini architects, 
drawing London's skyline from a roof terrace, 
helping build tree-houses and leafy lairs, 
snapping a London view and turning it to a postcard, 
design, building and testing the Broadgate Skatepark 
and many many more exciting activities. 

In a nutshell: a weekend full of creative fun 
for the whole family.
