Mary Poppins will be popping in to the Bank of England this half-term to show visitors around the museum on an interactive storytelling tour.

Kids will also be given a worksheet to colour in with their own kite design, and be able to draw some Disney landscapes on a big chalkboard. Maybe it will be somewhere they've been before, or maybe they can let their imaginations run riot on a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious adventure!

There will be four interactive storytelling tours every day: 11 AM, 12 noon, 2 PM and 3 PM.

Craig has never met Mary Poppins, but he has been to the Bank of England Museum and written a review on his blog, which you might like to read before you go.

Craig’s review of Science Museum If you are anything like me, then you will love learning about industrial-sized pistons and pipes and steam traction engines dating from the years 1715 to 1904. So when you walk into the Science Museum it will be like walking into heaven. The first hall is like a big factor… continued
Craig’s review of The Shard I hate heights but I'm going to brave this one, just for you. If I die then I'm blaming you. If The Shard falls down with me in it, then it's all your fault. Obviously I'm not scared. I'm a man, so I don't get scared. Rather, I'm simply concerned about the relative tensile s… continued

You just stand in front of the cages trying to find the an… continued
