BALTIC Front Room

BALTIC Front Room offers hospitality, care and kind conversation to all.

Located on the Ground Floor and looking out onto Baltic Square, BALTIC Front Room has socially distanced tables and seating. You can eat your own packed lunch here or have a refreshment of squash or tea and coffee. It's a place to pause and have a chat; about art, about our exhibitions, about life, about yourselves. BALTIC's friendly Crew will be in Front Room to welcome you on your visit.

BALTIC Front Room is a space for congregation, creativity and celebration. Throughout the year, we are hosting a series of welcoming events to support national and regional campaigns and celebrations in the space.

We want you to join in, whether you want to rest, read or make a difference to our world. Drop in, chat to BALTIC Crew and get involved.
