Children + Families

Raising a young family in an urban setting can bring its own set of challenges. We provide a range of creative play sessions where parents and carers can register their children in the knowledge that the kids are safe, having fun and meeting new friends. Or they can come along to family workshops and events where they can create and enjoy their leisure time together.

We also work in partnership with local schools to support the curriculum through delivery of specialist arts and media projects, performances and issue-based activities.

    Past

    They were too old for the Kidz Club and too young for the Drop In, so they knocked on our door a few weeks before Guy Fawkes Night 2014 and asked for help making their “Guy”.
