Vote for us in the Fantastic For Families Awards!

Published: Mon 27 Nov 2017

In March 2017, artsdepot was awarded Best Family Venue at the Get Creative Family Arts Festival Awards. The judges commended artsdepot for putting families at the heart of what we do, and welcoming them into the 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. Family audiences sit at the heart of our organisation, and we would love you to help us celebrate this.

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, and workshops with schools, artsdepot provides participation opportunities for youngsters of all ages. In 2015 – 16, 2,590 children and young people took part in our creative learning projects.

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 (previously the Family Arts Festival 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.
