Red carpets, camera crews, photographers, celebs …… they’re all on their way to London for this year’s London Film Festival, which runs from Wednesday, 8th to Sunday, 19th October 2014. The big films have been announced – The Imitation Game, Mr Turner, Fury and Foxcatcher among them – and the likes of Brad Pitt, Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley and Steve Carrel are all expected to tread that red carpet.
So film fans will be in their element. But what if you’re looking for something more family orientated?
The good news is that the London Film Festival has a special strand dedicated to family movies, completed with a Family Gala screening.

Around 42,500 children in London will now be entitled to free childcare, but take-up has traditionally been low. A new government campaign is being launched recently to encourage parents to use their free 15 hours a week.
