Fun Fit for Royalty
Kings Place is a hub for music, art, and food. It is moments away from Kings Cross Station, in an award winning glass building that overlooks the city. There is no better time to pay a visit than during their annual festival, which this year will be be between the 13th-15th September.
So why is this the best time to go? Not only does it have a weekend crammed with fun events, but you can get tickets at unbeatable prices. A lot of the shows are free, and those that you have to pay for at only £4.50 each.
There is no shortage of choice when it comes to music. The Aurora Orchestra will open the festival with Bartůk's Contrasts on Friday evening at 6pm, along with Brahms's Horn Trio in E flat, Op. 40 and Berg's Four Pieces for clarinet and piano, Op. 5. If it is contemporary karma you want then look no further than Lyrix Organix, who will be performing a mix of spoken word, beatbox, freestyle rap, and acoustic music. On the jazz scene is Oddarrang, an experimental band from Finland. They won the Best Jazz Album of the Year Award in 2007, and are currently touring the UK.
Starting from Saturday, you'll be getting your funny bone tickled by top comedians such as Robert Newman, who will be sharing his New Theory on Evolution, and sketches by Pappy in his Last Show Ever
Do something that your kids will enjoy by taking them to an art workshop, where they can get crafty using recycled materials. There will also be a puppet production of Alice in Wonderland, and a chance to do some role-play in an interactive Beast Quest, where they will solve cryptic puzzles and defeat evil wizards.
