Baltic Big Days Out. 5 days of nature.

Wed 21 - Sun 25 February

Bring Baltic back to nature with a growing cardboard installation of our building on Level 1 with Little Inventors. Imagine a version of Baltic where nature has taken over with sprawling vines and plants, curious animals, meandering rivers and much more. 

Take time to nurture and discover our environment in our Front Room with nature talks & tours, sketchbook drawing, sewing bees, honey tasting and more. 

Our Cereal Disco & Doodle will also be running as usual each morning for families to top up their tummies with a nourishing breakfast.

With four floors of art to explore, nature-inspired zine-making and a Learning Lounge equipped with a Sensory Room, baby social zones and nature books, there's plenty to see and do.

All activities are free drop-in and don't forget to share your green and leafy creations to our brand new Nature & Nurture site
