It is still summer and, in case you have run out of ideas to enjoy these last days of the season, we remind you up to four plans that end their activity in the upcoming days.

El Retiro Puppet Theater

If this summer you have not yet attended any of the shows of the Puppet Theater of El Retiro, this week you still have the opportunity. FITMadriz 2021, the annual summer festival, will close this edition on September 5 and, until then you can enjoy its puppets and marionettes, with free access as usual, in its usual place in El Retiro Park. 

Check out the program and enjoy the summer evenings with a theater company. You will be able to see shows like "Little Night Tales", by Slovak puppeteer Matija Solce, or "Kumulunimbu", by the artistic collective Ortiga, Award for Best Street Show at the Fira de Titelles de Lleida 2018. 


Plastihistoria de la Humanidad

The exhibition "Plastihistoria de la Humanidad" ends on September 6. Located in Moda Shopping Mall, the exhibition offers a historical and didactic tour for all audiences with plasticine as the main leitmotiv. 

The EDUCA Foundation, in charge of the exhibition, has designed up to 20 dioramas that, thanks to plasticine figures created from scratch by hand, narrate the most important moments of our history, such as the Paleolithic, Ancient Rome, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the First World War, and so on, chronologically, until the very conquest of space. 

Admission is free and can be visited every day.


"Felicidades, Pippi!"

The Casa del Lector at Matadero Madrid pays tribute, until September 19, to the iconic character of Pippi Longstocking. The exhibition "Felicidades, Pippi!" of one of the funniest and most special characters in children's literature created by the Swedish Astrid Lindgren 75 years ago, will excite the family audience.

Admission is free and it can be visited from Monday to Friday from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm, Saturdays from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm and from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm, and Sundays and holidays from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm.

"Peppa Pig and her family at the Royal Botanical Garden".

The Royal Botanical Garden of Madrid hosts until next September 30 the famous television character Peppa Pig, so popular among children. The Pig family will accompany the visits of the little ones to the garden to liven up their learning about botany outdoors, while they do many activities such as coloring, connect the dots, find differences or do puzzles.

A playful and didactic activity from the producer of the Peppa Pig cartoons, Entertainment One, which can be enjoyed in up to four different botanical gardens, highlighting the character's family and learning values.
