From Lego to pumpkin carving and  face painting to Thriller Yoga there is something for all the family 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.

Starting with a Bright Bricks Lego workshop where you can help build a model of the iconic power station to a monster making workshop on Sunday 29, 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.
