Stories of the River – Thames Festival family events at the KCC

While the main part of Korea Calling at the Thames Festival is taking place by the OXO Tower, the KCC has arranged some child-friendly activities at the cultural centre itself, 11am-5pm on Saturday and Sunday. Plenty to keep the young ones happy. And I highly recommend Sef Townsend’s storytelling. I’m sure you’ll be allowed in without a child to accompany you.
