School Visits

We offer a wide range of visits that explore children’s creativity which can be linked to the National Curriculum through our Local History displays, The Ingram Collection of Modern British Art and our huge range of internationally significant exhibitions.  We have developed a range of activity sessions, offering school groups of all ages the opportunity to explore our galleries and take part in hands on creative workshops.

“Please do pass on my HUGE, heartfelt thanks to Heather, Amy and Dajana for ANOTHER FABULOUS gallery visit and workshop session at the lovely Lightbox yesterday. The visit absolutely ticks all the right boxes for us as a school in terms of being a safe, secure environment. It is not so overwhelming as a gallery space to intimidate, yet it is grand and impressive enough to feel they have been to a ‘proper’ gallery and had a good look around! The collection as always, proves exciting and stimulating with a few surprises thrown in… Thank you once again, keep up the superb work you do.
