UK theme party... for kids

If you were to throw a British-themed party weekend for a 9, 6, and 4 year old – something both fun and (relatively) educational – what activities would come to mind?

My husband and I have been putting on a series of theme weekends for his kids, focused on a particular country/culture. The point is to have FUN and encourage them to think about the world outside our immediate region. Though we've only done a handful of weekends (Mexico, Japan, and France), so far they've been a big success.
We typically try to incorporate food traditions, flags, a bit of history, a few fun phrases in the language, and plenty of music and dancing... sometimes costumes!
I have a surplus of ideas for Britain (food, music, etc.), but I'd love pick the hive mind for some additional suggestions (particularly vis-à-vis children's books or TV). Thanks!
