This event is part of the Barber Family Festival

Connect with art through nature and play. This August families are taking over the Barber Institute for our second free Family Festival!

Come along to a drop-in session in our outdoor area, explore the building and galleries equipped with resources available in the foyer, including our Art Trolley. Help us re-imagine our spaces and enjoy open-ended creativity and discovery this summer, all inspired by our current exhibition Hidden Lives of Plants: Botanical Illustrations from the V&A.
