Join us for a family fun day themed around our summer exhibitions.


There ain’t no party like a Pallant House-Party!

Join us for a free family fun day inspired by our summer exhibitions. Get moving in one of our dance classes, dress up and take photos of yourselves as characters from our paintings or for something a little more sedate, settle down and listen to the stories of inspiring female creatives. Get involved in making your own protest art inspired by the suffragettes, contribute to our chalk mural or create a badge of your favourite strong woman.

Activities will take place on a first come, first served basis throughout the day, with something suitable for all ages.

Entry to the party (and gallery) is free to all.

Discover the tales of strong female creatives at storytelling sessions in the Virginia Woolf exhibition, with readings from Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls (12pm and 1.30pm)
