Family activities

3 August - 4 September (selected dates)

Visiting as part of a family group? Why not enjoy our free arts and crafts activities - available on selected dates throughout the summer holidays?

Sessions are free and run from 10.30am-12.30pm and 1.30pm-3.30pm. If you'd like to join in please reserve your places when you arrive at The Box as spaces are limited. A volunteer will be available near our Welcome Desk with the all-important sign up sheet!

Sessions are most suitable for children aged 4-11 years and highlight a different gallery, exhibition or collection each week. Enjoy!
