Explore the Gallery and creative spaces of the Base through songs, stories, sensory play and movement with professional classical singer Louise Ashdown.

The beautiful and stimulating gallery surroundings are a great place to spend quality time bonding with your baby. Visit our Interactive Tapestry Weaving exhibition by Alastair Duncan (13 July) or OTTOPIA (10 & 15 Aug) with your little one and enjoy 30 minutes of stories and nursery rhymes inspired by the exhibition!

Afterwards, enjoy a leisurely half hour exploring the exhibition with your baby - not only is there lots of space to crawl and explore, but there are lots of visual stimuli, perfect for little one's development. We aim to create a warm, welcoming, and supportive environment where you can meet, play and talk with other parents and carers - so also included in your ticket is either an Americano or pot of tea (and a Babychino) from Honesty at The Base, so you can finish your visit in the café together.

If you can’t make it to a Songs and Stories session, you can still visit us with your baby at any time - everyone (no matter how young or old) is welcome, at any time.

Duration: 9.30am - 10.30am
