The Garden, Bartholomew Fair Family Hub

Presented by City of London

Between the many spectacles of Bartholomew Fair we are creating space for families to make, play, relax and discover until the next performance.

Join us in The Garden, Bartholomew Fair’s family hub, for creative crafting and ginormous garden games in a child-friendly space with comfy seating for all the family.

Wonderful workshops, storytelling and singalongs will animate the space at the times below. On Saturdays these are curated by Tootles + Nibs and Sculpture in the City. Staff will be on hand to make suggestions about upcoming family-friendly highlights across the rest of the Fair. A quiet space will also be available.
