The Model is an exciting family-friendly arts centre with dedicated education spaces, a cinema, theatre space, cafe and bookshop. We host regular workshops, childrens cinema and a unique programme for young children and parents.
A wooden playhouse for children has recently been installed in The Models foyer. Designed by Gordon Ryan of Applied Sense, it is a unique space for children to play, read and enter into the world of imagination.
