Out & About | Theatre this Easter (2018)

Last week we posted about Easter egg hunts in London, you can read that post here. But we wanted to share some activities in London that don’t involve chocolate, because let’s face it after the Easter weekend you might just be a little bit chocolated out.

We love taking our little ones to the theatre so we’ve compiled a list of what’s on at the theatre in London during the Easter Holidays this year. It might be time to get booking!
