Whistle while you work


Saturday 18 July: Weekend storytelling sessions at Tower Bridge Exhibition

Join us at the Bridge on Saturday 18th July for "Whistle While You Work", the third in our series of bespoke storytelling performances written and performed by Diana Olutunmogun. The event is part of our exciting new family learning programme, which offers FREE storytelling sessions and hands-on drop-in activities on weekends throughout the year.

This week, Diana will be regaling visitors with a new tale all about the people who built the Bridge – not Horace Jones and John Wolfe Barry, but the construction workers who laid the 31 million bricks and drove in the 8 million rivets. We'll also be offering object handling of original rivets that were taken out of Tower Bridge when the new glass panels went in last year and we'll be displaying a selection of amazing photographs of Tower Bridge during its construction. Not only will you get to see and touch all these brilliant items but you'll get a chance to dress up in Victorian construction worker clothes as well as modern day safety garb.

Performances will be held throughout the day at intervals from 11:00 – 15:00, whilst activities will be available from 10:00 – 16:00.

Stories are aimed at children aged six to 10 years but can be enjoyed by visitors of all ages.

Both activities will take place in the South Tower and are included within the general admission. Activities are not available for pre-booking.

Book your tickets online now.
