People of all ages dance in a conga line outside of a brick building.


Saturday, 21st March 2020, 13:00 to 16:00

Responding to our current exhibition ASSEMBLY by Angelica Mesiti, artist and social-maker Megan Clark-Bagnall invites families to join her for an afternoon of celebration, focusing on the small things that turn us around, spark joy, and make us smile.

Between 1 and 3.30pm families are invited to drop-in and create their very own pocket-sized arts and crafts, including ‘I’d like to join your party’ rosettes, miniature placards, and a freestyle creation station for bunting and balloons.

Between 3.30 and 4pm you’re invited to adorn your rosettes, place your placards into our party shrine and hang your decorations as we hold our very own Assembly.

Bring along your favourite snack to contribute towards our shrine and share, and together we will (literally) share the fruits of our labour, celebrate the things that make us happy humans, and (probably) round off the day with a conga to Sister Sledge.

We Are Family events offer fun for all ages, but perfect for 3 – 11 year olds. This is a drop-in workshop and all are welcome. We suggest wearing clothes you don’t mind getting messy. All children will need to be accompanied by an adult.

All our family events aim to be welcoming and accessible to all. If there are ways we can make our events more accessible for you or your children please contact

There is wheelchair access throughout the building. We can provide backed-seating. We have accessible and gender neutral toilets as well as baby changing facilities and buggy park. There is a hearing loop by request in advance.

The nearest parking spaces for blue badge parking is at the Grove car park.

This event is Fantastic for Families. Our Galleries are family friendly and we encourage families to investigate our exhibitions together. There will be Family Activity Packs available in our gallery spaces.

Megan Clark-Bagnall likes to make fun/ny projects with people celebrating the good and the excellent in human nature to create sincerely feel good art – ‘she doesn’t make very serious art, but she is very serious about making art’ – smashing together mainstream culture and the art world to create striking large-scale art installations, performances that tell stories and immersive events that everyone is invited to take part in.
