Magnificent Collectors: Family Day

21 March 2015
Garden Room

Free, email booking advised.

Calling collectors young and old. Join us to celebrate the wonderful and creative world of collecting and bring your most loved treasure (or a photo of it) to be valued by a Christie’s expert.
Four specialists with expertise in paintings, jewellery, objects, toys, furniture, sports memorabilia and the decorative arts will be ready and willing to discuss and evaluate your object with you. All sorts of objects are welcome – if it’s special to you, come and find out more about it.

Once evaluated, pose with your object for a photo portrait by Gisela Torres and enjoy L_ve Hangman as well as a brand new game, made especially for this event by live game specialists Mufti. Spend time creating life-sized ‘insects’ out of waste paper and card to create a large collaborative artwork with Crafternoon and purchase a family ticket to Magnificent Obsessions and join one of our free family tours.

For more information on booking all events in advance (including the Christie's valuations) please see the Events Info tab.

This event is part of:

The Barbican cannot be responsible for insurance, loss or damage. Your object must remain in your care throughout the day.
