In 2017, artsdepot was awarded Best Family Venue at the Get Creative Family Arts Festival Awards. In 2018 we won Best Age-Friendly Welcome at what is now called the Fantastic for Families Awards. The judges commended artsdepot for putting our community at the heart of what we do, and being an open and welcoming venue. Now you can help us win the Fantastic For Families Audience Choice Award!

On the Fantastic for Families website, you can vote for artsdepot and tell the judges why we are your favourite organisation for families. We would love to hear what you think, and celebrate our vibrant programme for families with you!

We present 200 family performances each year across our two theatre spaces, in addition to free family events, and free music and exhibitions for people of all ages to enjoy. Our vibrant programme also includes relaxed performances and work especially designed for children with autism and profound and multiple learning disabilities.

From tiny tots exploring colours and textures at Messy Play, to teenagers creating their own theatre work in artsdepot Young Company, from free workshops with resident artists to our SEN school work experience programme, artsdepot provides participation opportunities for youngsters of all ages.

artsdepot is fully accessible for families with step free access and baby changing facilities on all levels. We have a free children’s area with soft play, a book corner, an area to display children’s artwork, and space for adults to relax. The café also provides a relaxing environment for families and NCT groups to meet, with child-friendly snacks and baby food on offer, and high chairs provided.

The Fantastic for Families Awards celebrate the wealth of outstanding performances, events and activities for families taking place across the UK, and will be judged by an expert panel of family arts leaders.
