Family Film Club
The best film club in town meets every Saturday.
Join us on Saturday mornings for Family Film Club for our wonderful programme of films for young fans.
Plus, on the final Saturday of the month drop in for our free Family Film Club Workshop. From show-stopping claymation to crafty shadow puppets, each workshop is led by a fantastic artist and inspired by our film screening.
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.
