Feeling inspired by the things you've seen in the museum? There are lots of ways to get stuck in, find out more or have a go yourself.

Coming with an organised group?

We offer a wide range of guided tours, talks and workshops for group visitors. Whether you're an art society,  luncheon club or ESOL class we can arrange a visit to suit your needs and give you a great day out. Find out more about group visits.

"Staff and volunteers enjoyed the day. The support available was really good, as were the facilities; the disabled toilet was very well equipped. Your staff were really helpful."

"We visited for the sheer pleasure of learning something new. People in the group will come again."

Coming on your own or with friends?

We have a programme of activities for adults to come along to. Take a look at our What's On pages for an up to date list of all events. These include:

    • Free lunchtime talks so you can  find out more about the exhibitions and collections from a whole host of interesting people. You'll be able to meet artists, curators and guest speakers, and quiz them about their specialist subjects. 
    • There are regular sessions inspired by the collections, such as life drawing, art classes and discussion groups 
    • You can learn new skills with a  one day workshop or short course taking inspiration from the galleries. People have had a go at monoprinting, urban sketching, photographic processing, creative writing and metal sculpture.
Keep an eye out for special events too such as evening talks, film showings, Lates, musical performances and live theatre.
