Families are welcome throughout the year to engage in creative activities inspired by our collection and exhibitions

Join us for free, interactive workshops, discovery days and activity trails that support families to learn together, in a fun and relaxed way. There’s no need to book. Everyone’s welcome and, best of all, we won’t ever ask you to keep the noise down.

Download one of our free family trails and explore the Library through puzzles, drawings and games:-

Our family events are free and are suitable for ages 5 – 11. Drop-in places are limited to 40 people per workshop and allocated on a first come, first served basis.
