This week's special edition of Framed Film Club is brought to us by our friends at London International Animation Festival as part of this year's festival.
Like childhood, animation is full of wonder and simple pleasures. This carefully chosen programme for our littlest and most special audience contains 14 wonderful short films, full of joy.
There’ll be talking animals, seriously fun adventures and wondrous tales to spark those little imaginations. Adults are allowed in if they have permission from their kids. Suitable for all ages but especially 0-7 year-olds.
Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult. If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count.
60p booking fee per online transaction, 70p by phone.
No fee when tickets are booked in person.
Booking fees are per transaction and not per ticket. If your booking contains several events the highest booking fee will apply. Booking fees do not currently apply to bookings for exhibitions in the Art Gallery. The booking fee may be reduced on certain events.
