Events, activities and facilities for families at FACT
FACT is a unique and exciting building with plenty on offer for all the family. You will find three gallery spaces featuring changing exhibitions and a continuous programme of family workshops so you can play and learn together.
We house three state-of-the-art cinema screens and The Box, where you can watch a film screening or attend an event from the comfort of a sofa. Our weekly Saturday Kids' Club is programmed especially for children and, on Thursdays and Fridays, we run Big Scream! screenings for parents with babies.
There are toilets on both the ground and first floors from which you'll never be too far from to dash to if the need arises! We also provide disabled access toilets on all levels and baby changing facilities - just request a key from a member of staff.
Our bright, family-friendly cafe, The Garden by Leaf, serves a range of fresh sandwiches, soup, salads, cakes, hot drinks and juices, as well as Ella's Kitchen Baby Food to keep your whole family fed and watered, and staff will happily heat up any baby food or milk and serve child-sized portions on request.
Don't forget to let us know if you would like a highchair for your little one and feel free to ask for a take-away tea or coffee from The Bar or Cafe to enjoy while you watch your film.
Boredom is not an option in our cinema, that's why every Saturday we accompany our Kids Film with games and activities!
We can't provide official child care, but we take special precautions to ensure that we create a fun and safe environment for a younger audience. There are even more of our friendly staff ready to help and we won't permit anyone over the age of 18 into the screening unless they're accompanying a child. (Children under eight must be accompanied).
For children aged 3-12. Membership is £4 a year, including the first visit free. Tickets for members and accompanying adults are £1.50 each. Non-members and accompanying adults pay £3.50 each. No adult unaccompanied by a child will be admitted.
Saturday Kids Club films start at 11am, with games and activities from 10.30am.

Autism-Friendly screenings are every Sunday at 11.30am. Tickets are £3 (there are no concessions or free tickets for support workers)
