It's a tut-free, child-friendly zone, so adults and wee ones can relax, and share the enjoyment and pleasure of a fabulous live music experience. Places are limited to 2 adults max per child.
Faces, Features and Creatures!
Did you know you could drop by the Portrait Gallery any day of the week and pick up our brand new family trail and mystery handling bag created by children's illustrator Sara Ogilvie? Have loads of fun dressing up and get creative with things to spot and things to draw; delve into the handling bag and find mysterious objects and costumes to help you find out more about our portraits. It's absolutely free and can be picked up any time from the info desk.
