Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th October

The final weekend of Somerset Art Weeks Festival 2017 extends a special welcome to families with venues across the county offering workshops, demonstrations, have-a-go activities and special events.

Our Family Friendly Weekend links in to national initiatives: Family Arts Festival and Big Draw.

Why a Family Friendly Focus? 

SAW wants to increase the amount of cultural provision for families and to highlight the opportunities that are available to them. Early engagement with arts and culture shapes habits for a lifetime and builds support for arts and culture in the future.  Families come in all shapes and sizes, spanning all ages and abilities. As well as children and young people we are also interested in older people in the context of family, how art and culture brings generations together, offering things to do together, to create together, and to remember together.

*Parents/carers must stay and supervise children/ young people at all times during activities.  Information is provided by the venues participating and we advise you to check with the event organiser before travelling.  SAW cannot accept liability for any loss, damage or injury connected to these events.
