Barbican Blocks

A squishy squashy adventure for under-fives

Barbican Centre
Drop in activity

Play, build and invent in a world of texture and colour for under-fives and their families.

A freestanding cube unpacks to become a selection of blocks made out of all sorts of materials that young children can use to shape the space around them in a sensory adventure.

Sessions take place every week; check session times to see when Barbican Blocks will be popping up in the foyer on Level G.

Barbican Blocks is produced by Pop up Parks and Co-DB in collaboration with Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning.

Pop up Parks create vibrant spaces in urban environments that encourage children and families to spend more time being playful, creative and physically active. Their projects transform underused spaces into play areas causing communities to see their environment in a different light, and feel included in its creation and change.
