All work and no play make Jack a dull boy. Bring in your children for some exciting board and word games on every Wednesday from 5.00 pm to 6.00 pm. Visit us with your children and enjoy a game of Chess or Jenga or maybe Pictionary and Scrabble. 

Every first Saturday of the month from 2.30 to 3.30 p.m. we organise a book reading club for children from 5 to 12 years. Children exchange their views on a story that they have read and discuss the various ways of 'reading' a book. It helps children develop their reading habits, vocabulary and speaking skills. This is a great platform for children to meet other children who love reading. So, bring your children along and let them enjoy the experience of reading. 

If obliged to cancel an event, the British Council reserves the right to do so without further liability, subject to the return of any fee already paid.

Audience below 18 years should be accompanied by parent/adult.
