If you are a Peter Pan fan you’re in for a treat thanks to the Museum of London Docklands.

Visitors will be taken to Neverland during two fun-filled weekends which include interactive events, film screenings and performances.

Professional character actors will lead Peter Pan-themed workshops and re-enact short scenes from the story, alongside a transformed museum adorned with confetti cannons and decorations.

Captain Hook and his pirates plus other characters from the J.M.Barrie story will also be making an appearance.

A portion of the proceeds raised will be donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital to make a vital difference to the seriously ill children from across the UK who are under its care.

Sarah Wolf, Peter Pan director at Great Ormond Street Hospital, said: “This immersive event will bring to life the enduring magic of the tale of Peter Pan, and we are very grateful for the support of the Museum of London Docklands through the staging of this event.”

The events take place on February 24 and 25 and March 3 and 4.
