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.

This coming Second Saturday 10 June, join us to create a picture of the Big Roman City: Londinium. Taking inspiration from the paintings in our special exhibition The Big City, and the ruins of London's Roman Amphitheatre, make Roman buildings from nets, colour in pictures, or simply create your own scene to add to our Big picture of the ancient city.

There will also be a story corner, costumes and building bricks available all day.

Activities are free, but booking is advised.
