Crawl in the Hall



    Crawl in the Hall is Back!
    Every Friday during term time, 10.00 - 11.00am

    The weekly event for under 5s is inspired by the art and museum collections and exhibitions at Abbot Hall Art Gallery and Museum of Lakeland Life & Industry. Join local artist, Rachel Kelly, who will lead fun, creative and multi-sensory sessions that encourage expression, exploration, language and movement for under 5s and their parent / guardian. Each session is different with a mixture of storytelling, song and play-based learning.

    Meet at 10.00am in the Bakestone Café at Abbot Hall for an 10.15am start, and show your booking receipt (on a mobile is fine). The sessions will finish at 11.00am but you are welcome to stay in the Gallery or Bakestone for longer.

    Booking essential as places are limited.

    Facilities Include:
    - Bottle warming and microwave
    - Baby change
