Now entering its third year, the architects, designers and engineers participating in the project are given rather tastier raw materials to create their masterpieces than most builders: gingerbread, icing and sweets make up the remarkable structures that are part of Gingerbread City. This year's theme is on 'Imagining the Future City,' and the exhibition is housed in the V&A's Creative Studio space. Admittance for V&A members and children under 12 is free, while general admittance is £6.
Alongside the exhibition are some exciting gingerbread-house building workshops that families can also book at various dates and times throughout the month of December (book here) for £30 per child (accompanying adults go free; children must be aged five and up).
Now, we haven't confirmed this, but we absolutely believe you should be allowed to taste-test the building materials...
