Family Fun: what’s happening in July 2018?

At the start of each month we’ll be compiling a list of events and activities for families and young people to enjoy here at The Point.

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


Microbes Family Fun Day: 21 July, 10am – 1:30pm

To celebrate the launch of our new Microbes exhibition, we’re holding a Family Fun Day! Be among the first to experience the exhibition, get stuck into drop-in creative activities as a family, and bring along a picnic or purchase a picnic pack from our cafe!


Microbes exhibition: 21 July – 1 September

Celebrate the microscopic world of bacteria and cells with our Microbes exhibition. Our gallery will transform as it becomes home to a glowing landscape of suspended inflatable microbe pods. Walk among them, feel them sway around you and watch how they breathe in this mesmerising artistic spectacle.


Swaglets Summer taster: 24 July

Swaglets is our R&B choir for 11 – 14 year olds, running Thursdays at 5:15pm – 6:15pm during term-time. After 5 July, Swaglets are on their summer break – but if you’re interested in joining up when sessions begin again in September, why not come along to this fun summer taster [10am – 12pm]? You’ll meet choir leader Alice and get a taste of what it’s like to be a Swaglet! No experience required.

For those interested, Alice and rapper Kolega will then be running a taster rap workshop in the afternoon [1pm – 3pm] – again, you don’t have to be a good rapper to come along and join in!


DNFestival: 27 – 28 July

It’s that time of year again – our brilliant partners Right Up Our Street put on an annual arts and performance festival every July, and this year it’s all about space! There’s loads to enjoy, including street theatre, music and cool workshops! Find out more here.


Get involved:

We are recruiting young people (13 – 25) with a passion for the arts to become part of our new Young Curators Group. The group will become involved in a range of activity, such as assisting with exhibition programming and curating the gallery space. No experience is necessary.

The first opportunity will be to work on our upcoming exhibition ARTIST ROOMS, a selection of work from collections owned by Tate and National Galleries of Scotland. More information will be released soon but if you would like to register to your interest, email


Our workshops and exhibitions are free to attend. We are a charity reliant on funding, so if you would like to donate to support our work, please click here.
