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.
