We are a part of the BP Family Festival: Play the Gallery on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th February at the Tate Britain. We will certainly be "playing" in the gallery as we do a couple of little promenade performances at 1pm and 3.15pm. We will start at the top of the staircase and take you on a little wander through the gallery. Come down for the whole day as there are lots of different activities going on, check their website for details. http://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-britain/festival/bp-family-festival-play-gallery
