Relax in a London hostel as the kids party at the Underage Festival
Parents who are keen to have a few hours off from their kids this summer might like to visit England and drop their children off at the Underage Festival.

This music event enables those aged between 14 and 18 to rock out to live bands while mothers and fathers take a break in a London hostel.

Top acts such as M.I.A - who are headlining - will be performing at the extravaganza, while Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac and Tinchy Stryder will also be on stage to wow the crowds.

Mums and dads may like to book a hostel in London near to Victoria Park - where the event is being held from 12:00 BST to 20:00 BST, but doors open at 11:00 BST.

Neither parents nor guardians are permitted to watch the event and the organisers are predicting there will be 10,000 teenagers in attendance.

But the festival website maintains that it is working with the local police, as well as other authorities to ensure the occasion passes without any issues.

And they advise people to use public transport to reach the venue instead of coming by car.

Mothers and fathers who drop their youngsters off and have the rest of the day to fill might like to go shopping on Oxford Street, or check out an arrange of cultural hot-spots such as the National History Museum or the Science Museum in south Kensington, which is free to enter.

A romantic trip on the London Eye may also go down well.
