Family

Arnolfini welcomes families into the galleries & we have a dedicated family zone in Gallery 5. We offer a range of events designed for all members of the family, parents, carers and children. We also have menu items for children in the Café Bar, a wide selection of children's books in our Shop and baby changing facilities. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Regular Family Storytelling

Every Tuesday Arnolfini runs Family Storytelling mornings. Story tellers will amaze you, make you giggle and provide a morning of fun. Meet in the Café Bar at 10.30am and follow us to our storytelling space where you'll listen to stories from beautiful books - carefully selected from Arnolfini Shop. Suitable for ages 2-4 years.
