BALTIC Half Term Family Day


You’re invited to BALTIC’s third Family Day, this February half term. You could be raving with glow sticks, making masks or acting like an animal inspired by Heather Phillipson’s playful exhibition, The Age of Love. The Level One event space will be transformed for you to enjoy a UV dancer and a DJ.

Free tea, coffee and squash will be available plus a picnic area for those families that want to bring their own packed lunch. BALTIC Kitchen will also have a special Family Day offer. BALTIC Family Day is totally free, so there is no need to book, just drop-in. Recommended for ages 4-13, but all are welcome.

Don't miss the Family Day Access Hour between 5pm-6pm on Wed 20 February (booking free but essential for access hour)

Explore BALTIC this Family Day with Access Hour; a quieter, more relaxed opportunity to visit artist Heather Phillipson’s exhibition The Age of Love. Family Day Access Hour is suitable for those on the autistic spectrum and their families, but open to anyone who feels they might benefit. During this session changes will be made to the sound and lighting to help you have the best possible experience.
