Discover's 10th BirthdayDiscover has been entertaining London families for 10 years and they're throwing a free weekend-long 10th Birthday Party to celebrate. The weekend celebrations include an interactive guided tour of the unseen nooks and dark crannies of Discover's building presented by award-winning theatre company Inspector Sands. Visual artist Kirsty Harris (The Good Neighbour) asks you to add your feather to the nest for a new take on the classic Ugly Duckling. DJ and spoken word artist Charlie Dark presents a remixed telling of The Tortoise and the Hare (Sunday only). Go along on Saturday afternoon and you'll discover who the surprise guest is.
