In the school holidays – we open up the beautiful Assembly Rooms – on selected dates – for families and friends to make, create and play together. Each school holiday we have a child friendly trail in the Pump Room. We also recommend a holiday visit to the Crescent Experience, standard admission allows you and your children to explore the Experience at your own pace and enjoy the interactive features!
During term time – on a Friday, once a month, Under Fives and their grown ups can enjoy our Pitter Patter Sessions – exploring and playing with specially created activities in the Crescent Experience. Find out more here
At weekends – our facebook page and Events highlight planned activities for families on specific weekends. These often link to big events like Heritage Open Days, the Georgian Derbyshire Festival and Fun Palaces.
Is there a cost? At the moment, most of our family activities are free, with a suggested donation. Donations help us to keep offering a fun and inspiring programme of events for everybody.
