BIG Family Day

Head down to HOME on Sunday 13 December, for a great day of fun creative workshops, family friendly theatre and films.

We’ve got a very special visit from author Cornelia Funke who’ll be on hand to sign your treasured copies of Inkheart and you can also go on a fabulous storytelling adventure that takes you behind the scenes at HOME. Plus, there’s laughs in the cinema with Bill, the new film from the Horrible Histories gang, Theatre 2 gets taken over by The Boggle, Sketch-O-Matic returns and there’s a fun robot workshop and parade for kids of all ages!

If you’re heading to the Big Family Day by car, our neighbours Q Park are offering 1/3 off parking when you book online at and enter the promo code BigFamily (valid on 13 Dec only).
