Gainsborough's House, the museum and gallery at the birthplace of Thomas Gainsborough
We offer a range of activities for all ages. Lectures and talks compliment our permanent collection and exhibitions, while our workshops will inspire any budding young artist.
We run a variety of workshops and guided tours for schools, community groups and organised parties of visitors from the region and beyond. During the school holidays, we organise a series of exciting events for children and families. Regular classes are also on offer, such as Artsmart, a Saturday morning art class for children, and a monthly Life Drawing session for adults.
Art history lectures and gallery talks are programmed throughout the year. Outreach sessions to schools, art societies and other community groups are also offered.
