BALTIC Front Room

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

BALTIC Front Room is a place to pause and have a chat; about art, about our exhibitions, about life, about yourselves. Take a seat, eat your own packed lunch here or enjoy a free hot drink or squash (donations welcome). 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.
