Take a seat at the Geffrye, where activities this spring are about chairs. Today, in the museum's monthly Saturday Special event, children aged five to 15 can make cushions and take part in quizzes. At half-term (15-18 Feb), there are workshops to create whacky and wonderful chairs, large and small. Places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, 30 minutes before each session, so arrive in plenty of time.

Exercise your vocal chords with Highgate's star-struck nun, Sister Mary McArthur. Children aged three to eight (and their parents) can join in with their favourite songs from the musicals, including The Sound of Music. There's no advance booking, so arrive early. Doors open half an hour before each performance.
