Family activities

Sign up to our Monthly Family Newsletter to receive information on family-friendly events and activities at Guildhall Art Gallery and London's Roman Amphitheatre.

Second Saturday

On the Second Saturday of every month we run themed family events. A revolving programme of family activities may have you heading into the Roman Amphitheatre and hearing tales of Roman conquests, or creating crafts from the Victorian paintings surrounding you. Under 12s can visit our exhibition Inspired! for free, and on the second Saturday of the month are also able to bring an adult in for free.

This Second Saturday 9 July we have a whole host of activities inspired by the artworks and stories in our Inspired! exhibition. We’ll be making comic book storyboards on the iPads, there will be a family tour of the exhibition, and storytelling.

Find out more and book your place now.

Upcoming dates for the diary:

  • 9 July
  • 13 August

You can join our Second Saturday session at any time between 11am to 3pm. Entry is free and included in our general admission ticket. Booking is advised but not essential.
