Family fun at The Point: May 2018

At the start of each month we’ll be compiling a list of events and activities for you to get stuck into as a family here at The Point.

Without further ado, here’s our free, fun and family-friendly list for May!




12 May: Saturday Family Workshop
Artist Karen Hall leads this workshop – try your hand at creating some brilliant art using microscopes, slides and close-up imagery.
10am – 12pm.

26 May: #PointFEST

#PointFEST is our first ever family-friendly music festival! It’ll be held here at The Point between 11am and 2pm.

There’s loads to get involved with, from a silent disco to face-painting to sensory art fun in the form of our very own UV rave. Listen to the amazing music of professional musicians and local school bands, enter our fancy dress competition, and dance along to a DJ set – you can even have a go at DJing yourself!

The fancy dress theme is festival – think wellies, ponchos, flowers in your hair and band t-shirts.

Entry to the festival is free and there is no need to book – just come along and have fun!

31 May: Holiday Family Workshop
Experiment with elements of light and time to create your very own family portrait with photographer Les Monaghan.
Sessions run at 10am – 12pm and 1pm – 3pm. The morning session is designed for children with disabilities and their families.

Don’t forget to book your place on the workshops – email or phone us on 01302 341662.





From 23 April: Royal Photographic Society: International Images for Science 
This exhibition explores the relationship between photography and science, showcasing 100 fascinating images selected by an expert judging panel. Find out more here.


You can take part in the above workshops and visit the exhibitions together as a family, but we also offer activities for young people to take part in on their own or with friends. There’s lots happening, from singing groups to art clubs – check out what we’ve got on here.
