August Bank Holiday Celebrations

Two days of free activities

This year, we're celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Unicorn's arrival on Tooley Street and we'd love for you to join us in a weekend of activities for the whole family to enjoy. 

All events during the weekend are free, but some have limited availability so we recommend booking in advance via our Box Office team on 020 7645 0560. There will also be a number of drop-in arts, crafts and games during the weekend and you will still be able to sign up to workshops on the day too.

To ensure everyone can enjoy the workshops, we have limited advanced booking to 2 children per workshop with a maximum of 2 events bookable per day.

Here's what we have in store and you can download a timetable of events for further details.

Make a day of it!

Why not make a day of it and plan some other activities while you're here? Our Unicornershop in the foyer sells a range of healthy snacks and drinks and there are lots of family friendly places to eat nearby including Jamie's Italian, Strada, Pizza Express, Leon and more.

Our riverside location means you can combine a trip to the Unicorn with a visit to Borough Market, Bermondsey Street, HMS Belfast and many other local attractions, or keep it simple with a stroll along the South Bank or a picnic on Potters Fields with an iconic view. Find out more about your visit.
