The Ark

The Ark introduces children to the joy, wonder and creativity of the arts, and plays a vital role in raising the standard of culture for children. Here, in a unique building designed specifically for them, children aged  2  to 12 explore everything from theatre, music and literature to painting, film, dance and more. They discover what it means to be an artist, from respected professional artists. You can view the full details of their current programme on their website. Their programmes change each season and advance booking is recommended.  They do not have permanent exhibitions and the centre is not normally open on a drop-in basis. Their box office staff would be happy to provide any further information you many need.
