From Lego to pumpkin carving to face painting for the kids and Thriller Yoga to a DJ for adults, there is something for all the family to enjoy this Half Term and Halloween at Circus West Village, Battersea Power Station.

The Village Hall, a new community arts and events venue at Battersea Power Station, is playing host to a multitude of events and activities, many of which are free, for children and teenagers, from Saturday 21st October 2017. Starting with a Bright Bricks Lego workshop where you can help create a 2D model of the iconic Power Station to a “spooktacular” monster making workshop on Sunday 29th, there is plenty to keep young minds and hands busy.

It is just yards away from Mother, a new Italian pizza restaurant from Copenhagen and No. 29 Power Station West, a relaxed neighbourhood bar and restaurant serving food all day. Plus, with The Battersea General Store and a series of pop up businesses to explore at Grosvenor Arch, Circus West Village will be the perfect base for your day out.
