Saturday Club for 8-12yrs Toggle
Did you know that London is home to 8.6 million people? Or that the Shard is the tallest building in Europe? What about that London is soon going to have 500 new tall buildings or that in the future our homes will be made in factories?
NLA’s new Saturday Club for young Londoners aged 8-12yrs will teach you everything you never knew you didn’t know about your city! We’ll be inspired by New London architecture’s amazing scale model of London that shows the built environment of the city past, present and future. Every month there will be a range of fun, practical STEM and art activities on offer led by artists, architects, engineers and other design professionals.
Check our events pages for upcoming Saturday Clubs.
