“There’s so much to see, touch, explore and experience. Cerys is wide-eyed at the things here which we don't have at home.”

Artbaby - Musicbaby

“My baby LOVES this. He is active, wide-eyed, bouncy and afterwards he sleeps! Thank you.”

Creative journeys start here. Designed especially for babies and their grown ups, and led by artists and musicians, these sensory workshops explore new spaces and sounds, art and music. We know, from our work and our research, that babies can sense and perceive, respond to beauty, recognise things, learn and remember – which makes our gallery an especially rich environment for you and your baby. Come and enjoy some special time together: mums, dads, grandparents and carers are all welcome.

Wednesdays, 10.15am-11.15am or 11.30am-12.30pm. FREE.
