Get a spring in your step with a variety of hands-on activities to mark St George’s Day 2021.

As well as the chance to participate in the unique Singing with Nightingales project you can also make your own St George and the Dragon at an Idea Store puppet workshop. Head over to the Museum of London online to discover six things you never knew about Pearly Kings and Queens, and to decorate your own penny plains and explore the history of some of London’s best loved nursery rhymes! There's also the opportunity to join a 'digital ding-dong' with Music Hall Songs for St George's Day from the Trad Academy or create a short ‘window theatre’ film inspired by fountain that was once outside the V&A Museum of Childhood!
