1) Look at the statements below about entertainment for children in London. Read the text to decide if each statement is true or false. Put “T” or “F” on your answers.

The Barbican Center programme changes from day to day.

Children can be left at the Barbican Centre for the day.

At the South bank Centre there is dance from different parts of the world.

The children’s Zoo sells soft toy animals.

The Museum of the Moving Image is most suitable for older children.

It coasts £ 3.95 to join the Jumping Jelly Bean Club.

Visiting London with children? Here’s a guide to some attractions for younger tourists. The Barbican Centre has its annual children’s festival. Summer in the City, on 1-5 August. Each day’s timetable is handed out as you enter. It may include magic shows, face painting, hat making and music. One ticket (£ 4.50 for children, £1 for adults, and no children or adults allowed on their own) buys a full day’s activity so you can have a go at everything. At the South Bank Centre young dancers can join in Sleeping Beauty workshops with the English National Ballet on 3 August. On 4 August Peter Badejo encourages all comers to join in African dance and there’s outdoor dance, theatre and music for all the family on the terraces around the Centre at weekends. For example, on 21August the Teatro Buendia from Cuba will present a show for children of all ages called An Elephant Takes Too Much Room. At London Zoo there is a special exhibition about animals which have disappeared as well as animals in danger of disappearing. There are lifesize moving models of dinosaurs, but you can also see living examples of endangered species such as tigers and bird-eating spiders. While you may not want to get too near these, there are plenty of friendly animals in the new Children Zoo which will be happy to let you get close to them. The Museum of the Moving Image is about the cinema. Its guides are actors dressed as cowboys and films stars. You can learn about film-making in special classes and there is a special exhibition at eye-level for very young children under one metre tall. If adults are ready for a rest why not book Sunday lunch at the Russel Hotel? The Jumping Jelly Bean Club offers an exercise class (with qualified instructors) for children while you have a drink. Sit down to lunch together (£14.25 for adults, £3.95 for the children’s menu), then while you have your coffee, the Jumping Jelly Beaners watch children’s films. The Club is held every Sunday lunchtime and it’s free to children with families eating in the hotel.
