Sky is hosting a three-day Sky Kids Cafe experience, offering visitors the chance to immerse themselves in the worlds of some of the broadcaster's most popular children's television shows.

Taking place over three days during the May half term, at the Vinyl Factory in central London, Sky Kids Café will offer arts and crafts alongside three imaginative play areas for children to discover: Nicktoon’s SpongeBob SquarePants, Boomerang’s Scooby-Doo and Ben & Holly from Entertainment One (eOne), which airs daily on Nick Jr.

Visitors will be able to explore SpongeBob’s underwater world, complete with his Pineapple House and colourful sea creatures, enter the haunted house and help to solve Scooby-Doo mysteries and jump into Ben & Holly’s oversized Little Kingdom with magic wands and fairy dust trails. 

Sky has also teamed up with celebrity chef and mother Lisa Faulkner to provide a special menu to enjoy in the café, offering food and drink inspired by each of the shows.

The Sky Kids Café is being opened in celebration of the brand's recently launched Sky Kids app.

Earlier this year Nickelodeon brought SpongeBob to Intu centres this Easter.
