Explore the 167 Annual Open Exhibition - only in the dark! Take part in a Halloween exhibition trail. Hunt down the creepy crawlies and spooky creatures lurking in our galleries...
Take part in spooky art activities
🎃 Follow our secret recipe to create your own oozy, drippy slime.
👻 Make your very own 'magic picture'. Draw on white paper with a white wax candle and what do you see? Nothing! But colour over the top with our magic solution and all will be revealed...
💀 Raid the witch's spell cupboard for feathers, fir cones, bones, skulls and other spooky objects. Then, get busy drawing your finds. Use your feather as a quill, or roll a fir cone in ink and see what texture it creates. Perhaps you have a mini DaVinci on your hands who'd rather draft an anatomically accurate skull. Anything goes!
🎨 Pick up a self-led drawing activity and have your artwork published in an online gallery on The Big Draw website.
Children and families are encouraged to dress up and there will be a prize for the best children's costume.
Family ticket (up to 2 adults + 2 children) £8 | Additional children £5 (under 1's free).
