Easter holidays fun at The Base

Hop along to The Base for tonnes of creative fun for the whole family this Easter!

Wildlife Photographer of the Year 59 exhibition

Bring the whole family along to marvel at the incredible pictures of nature in all it's forms on display in the 59th instalment of Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition.

We've put together a fun free activity sheet which you can use to guide your visit and gives them tasks to complete whilst they're in the Gallery space.

On the back of the activity sheet is also an arty Easter egg hunt for children - simply wander upstairs together to find our Resident Artists' studios and complete the hunt with some art inspired questions too!

(See bottom of this webpage to download more activity sheets at home)

Coming again this year to see an exhibition? Our Family Base Pass gives 2 adults and 2 children unlimited access to the Gallery for 12 months for just £45! Click here to find out more
