The Lady Lever Art Gallery was named in memory of Lord Lever’s wife Elizabeth and was built to house an art collection to share with Lever’s soap factory workers. It’s always been about community and inclusion and today is no different. It’s not uncommon for us to hear parents say they don’t think the gallery is for them as they fear they’ll be too noisy or it’ll go over the kids’ heads. We’d like to shout from the top of our beautiful glass domes that we love noise, creativity and little ones and we’d love you to come and visit!
That said we know Horrible Histories, Paw Patrol and Peppa Pig may be more your kind of thing than Pre-Rapahelites so we’ve got lots of fun new events this autumn to keep everyone entertained. Join us soon for:
Jacob will be with us most Sundays for a gentle start to the day with stories, songs and games. Open to all but aimed at children aged 7 years and under come and enter the magical world of your own imagination. Stay and play and explore the Activity Rooms while you’re here, we’ll have coffee brewing in the cafe if the grown ups need a bit of extra stimulation!
Aimed at older children who want to break out of school and get creative our craft and create sessions run Monday to Thursday from 3 – 4.30pm. Each day has its own activity, with Jacob or Siobhan on hand to help. All materials are provided so dump that expensive after school club and come and create with us instead! For families who can’t get to us after school we also run regular Weekend craft and create sessions too.
We’ve always planning something new to keep the kids occupied so save the date for our Spooky tours on 24 October and Christmas celebrations on 2 December and remember we’re open daily from 10am to 5pm and there are plenty of permanent interactive displays and trails to enjoy so don’t be a stranger! Sign up to our mailing lists to be the first to know what’s going on, including details of our new Quentin Blake and John Yeoman exhibition and face that FOMO!
