There are plenty of reasons to bring your family to Nottingham Contemporary this October Half Term. We've got loads of free family activities designed to inspire imaginations and help you discover our exhibitions from Geoffrey Farmer and Asco together.
Our events are free and all ages are welcome, 11am – 3pm, just drop in.
Tue 22 - Fri 25 October and Tue 29 October - Fri 1 November: Stage Sets & Costumes, in The Space or Studio
Take to the stage for the first week of the holidays and become a set designer. In the second week be inspired by the glam rock chic in our exhibition to make your own costumes.
Sat 26 and Sun 27 October: Instant Murals, in The Studio
Like Asco we'll be creating instant murals. Come along and strike a pose. Hold the pose whilst a family member tapes you to the wall!
Sat 2 and Sun 3 November: Puppet-Making Extravaganza, in The Space
Celebrate the end of the holidays with our Puppet-Making Extravaganza. Watch sculptures and objects come to life in our current exhibition, and then bring your own puppets to life too.
Borrow an Explorer kit bag - every day during the exhibition
Free, Available from Reception
These little bags of wonder offer families practical and playful ways to explore and enjoy the exhibitions.
“A great idea – it helped my children to be able to look at the art in more detail.” Family visitor
