Children & Families

Encouraging engagement with contemporary art in our communities is at our heart. We offer creative sessions designed to encourage children and families to play together and explore their own creative skills.

Firstsite really is the ideal place to visit in Colchester for all the family; both the young and older generations.

Holiday Fun

Our Holiday Fun programme runs throughout school holidays to provide a full and fun day out for families, including free art and physical activities and a low cost hot lunch. Families who receive free school meals can receive their meals for free.
