WHAT’S ON: Half term in Brixton

All the fun of the farm - Vauxhall City Farm is running workshops on Wednesday and Thursday

This week is half term for school kids and with this in mind, we asked Sarah Vaci, marvellous mum behind the Little Lambeth blog, to tell us her top tips for keeping your youngsters occupied.
