Inspire the family with Walkabout Talkabout at the Tate St Ives this Easter

Posted by kelly in st ivesEventsCornwallAttractions

Art galleries don’t get much more family friendly than Tate St Ives, and its Walkabout Talkabout event this Easter will make it even more accessible for younger visitors.

Families will be able to join a member of the learning team for an extra special journey into the current exhibition, bringing the attraction to life for visitors of all ages.

The service is free with admission, and there’s no need to book in advance, just ask to take advantage of the event when you arrive. Walkabout Talkabout will be running on the dates below at 11am:

  • Saturday 30 March
  • Wednesday 3 April
  • Thursday 4 April
  • Saturday 6 April
  • Wednesday 10 April
  • Thursday 11 April
  • Saturday 13 April

St Ives has always held an allure over artists thanks to perfect lighting and picturesque landscapes. In fact, with its clear waters and hazy sunsets the town is one of the UK’s most painted locations. Tate St Ives overlooks the sandy Porthmeor Beach, so if you enjoy one of our St Ives holiday cottages during the Easter holidays you’ll be able to take the children to the gallery before stepping out on to the sand.

The current exhibition at Tate St Ives is a celebration of William Scott’s work. February marked the centenary of his birth, and he was one of his generation’s most influential painters. Scott pushed the boundaries in his experiments with still life, nude and landscape art, and this event marks the first major display of his work in the UK for more than two decades.

Walkabout Talkabout is a great way to engage children with art, and the learning team know just how to get them thinking about what they see.
