Family Fun: Dream Big

Tuesday, February 13

Join us for some February half term fun when we’ll be taking inspiration from John Akomfrah’s stunning multi-screen film ‘Arcadia’ for a variety of free drop-in activities.

We’ll be marbling paper and making beautiful dream books to capture the dreams or amazing daydreams you’ve had. Incredible local storyteller Abimbola Alao will also be with us to share the stories of some of the real life families whose lives are documented in our archives and who left Plymouth in the 18th century when the city was the busiest emigration point in England.

Free admission. No need to book. Drop in for as little or as long as you like.

Please be aware that you may have to wait a short while if our sessions are busy. You can always make the most of the ‘Explore More’ tables next to our shop or our free family trails while you’re waiting!
