Dear London Mums,
Winter is looming and who better than Bear Grylls can put a smile on our face. In an exclusive interview he tells us all about his parenting skills and a few behind-the-scenes gossips from his adventures. This can only mean one thing: the Winter issue of the London Mums magazine is here and in supermarkets!
Check the list of the Top 20 Family Activities For Winter Weekends to keep your little ones entertained during the cold season and over Christmas.
In the lead up to Christmas, Bake Off star and super London mum Nadiya Hussein gives us tips for alternative festive cakes and opens up about family, her new career, the Queen’s cake and her latest book Bake Me A Story, a unique hybrid of children’s recipe and storybook aimed at bringing families into the kitchen to spend time sharing stories and cooking.
Film Director Mira Nair talks about her latest flick Disney’s Queen of Katwe that tells the vibrant true story of a young girl from the streets of rural Uganda whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess.

Scottish TV presenter Carol Smillie speaks about her latest entrepreneurial venture, the Diary Dolls, a pioneering range of pretty clever underwear for young women who might be worried about heavy periods whilst at school, playing sport and sleepovers.
In conversation with Francesca Lombardo, author of Beatrice and the London Bus, we discuss her educational children’s books aimed at helping young people overcome urban isolation and enjoy living in this wonderful melting pot.
Her series ‘Beatrice and the London Bus’ was voted by London Mums as the ultimate kids’ novels based in London.
