Family fun for free
Come face to face with history at the National Portrait Gallery. Families can meet Henry VIII and Elizabeth I; say hello to Shakespeare and Jane Austen; and even discuss politics with Winston Churchill or have their photo taken with Ed Sheeran.
During the October half term, remember to check out the free family activity trails available for you to enjoy.
Family Activity Base
Every day of the October half term between 11am – 4pm youngsters can visit the FAB (Family Activity Base) cart for free activities including a Pop-Up Gallery where they can create their own portraits and 3D models.
Also, on Thursday 25th October, from 11am – 4pm, there will be a free family art extravaganza for the annual “Big Draw” Festival, which celebrates the power of drawing. Families can drop in and join in the fun with a team of artists who will be taking part in collaborative activities across the Gallery.
