Celebrate your City
Museum of London
Saturday 11 & Sunday 12 November 2017
FREE

Get the family together and celebrate digital technology with this free family festival. Taking place on 11 & 12 November at the Museum of London, this special weekend festival invites you and your little ones to challenge your knowledge of today’s technology in the city.

Celebrate your City, in partnership with Raspberry Pi, will see the museum turned into a technology hub with opportunities to explore coding and GPS tracking through various workshops, storytelling sessions and craft activities. You will have the chance to become a digital maker and create amazing objects, from robots with blinking antenna to digital pixel pets and pieces of wearable technology.

Families will be able to recreate buildings in London using iPads, go on a selfguided technology tour of the museum, and get involved in interactive story telling sessions. For gamers young and old there will also be a vintage game corner where you can turn back the clock and play some vintage London video games. There’s digital creativity for everyone!
As part of the City Now City Future season, the museum’s year-long programme exploring urban life in London and around the world, the festival will show the modern, innovative and changing city that London is.
