Crawl in the Hall

Every Friday during term time, 10.30 - 11.15am

Our weekly event for under 5s is inspired by the art and museum collections from exhibitions and displays at Abbot Hall Art Gallery and Museum of Lakeland Life & Industry. Join 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.

Through September to October these sessions will run as Gallery in the Library. Free sessions at Kendal Library.
