Gulbenkian's got so much going on for families and young people that in this handy section we've put together some useful information to make your visit easier and even more enjoyable.
Events particularly of interest for Families can be found listed here. Family events have a standard ticket price for adults and children. Children must have a valid ticket and be accompanied by an adult at all times. Children under the recommended age may be admitted but will still require a child’s ticket. Baby on lap £1 tickets are available for 0-18months on selected shows. Please note that there is a limited number of baby on lap tickets available per show or screening.
Gulbenkian's 3D films are screened using specific technology so special glasses are required. These are included in the ticket price and will be handed out and collected by our Front of House team members prior and following the screening. Children's 3D glasses are available on family 3D screenings.
Snacks and drinks are allowed to be taken into the cinema and theatre.
Age ranges are provided as a guide and we ask you to consider whether a show is suitable for your child. To find out if a show is suitable for your child if it is not listed here, please contact our ticketing team on 01227 7690975 or by email.
Put your creative skills to the test at Gulbenkian's table full of activities sheets, colouring crayons available on days where there is a family event. We love seeing what you've done so hand your masterpieces to a member of our team or send us a photo of it on twitter . We've also got an array of children's books for those quieter moments.
