  • Film Night at BFI Southbank

    Mother's day isn't all about splurging big or doing something impressive. Your mum would probably appreciate spending some quality time with you. That's why we're suggesting a movie night - we'd recommend BFI Southbank, who are showing Girlfriend's season at the moment, all about female talent on screen. 

    If you haven't seen Lady Bird yet, it's a heart-warming film examining a complex mother-daughter relationship, full of laughs, tears and big on emotion. 

    Dissect the film over a cocktail at the BFI bar afterwards.

  • Night out at the National Theatre

    A night out at the theatre is always a special experience. Take your mum to the National Theatre and see Pinnochio, Macbeth or Amadeus - three excellent plays, with great reviews. 

    The National Theatre's House Restaurant is the perfect place to make a night of it with stylish dining, serving a contemporary take on classic restaurant dishes. If you're seeing Pinocchio, we recommend trying the Pinocchio inspired afternoon tea, Hi-Diddle-dee-Tea.
