BALTIC's Learning Lounge re-opens Saturday 19 September FREE, Booking essential Booking available Mon-Sun, 10.45-12.15 & 13.15-14.45 BALTIC's Learning Lounge is re-opening on Saturday 19 September and we're looking forward to welcoming you back safely. We've put changes in place so that you can enjoy a safe visit with your family, household or bubble in a relaxed and creative environment. Before visiting we are asking all visitors to book a free group ticket for a maximum of 6 people, for an allocated timeslot at 10.45-12.15 or 13.15-14.45. This will help us manage the number of people visiting and ensure that you and your family and friends can experience the Learning Lounge safely. BALTIC's Learning Lounge is a fun and informal learning space where visitors can chat, rest, learn and play. If you've visited us before, you'll notice our Learning Lounge looks a little different. Upon booking, you'll be allocated your own Zone in the Learning Lounge. Each Zone will have soft seating, a table and chairs, wipe-able matting and a screen showing subtitled versions of BALTIC exhibition tours and our building-history films. You'll also receive a special box of books, games and toys to use whilst you're with us and a set of creative activities to explore in the space or take home with you. Each Zone can be booked for a maximum of 6 people; yourself and those in your household or bubble. There will be two other household bubbles sharing your timeslot, in their own socially-distanced Zones. BALTIC's Learning Lounge will also have a community computer bank and communal creative table for you to use, with socially distanced seating. If you wish to visit the galleries before or after your Learning Lounge timeslot, you will need to book a free ticket Our Learning Lounge toilets including toddler toilets and accessible toilets with WispaLite hoists 200kg, closomat wash and dry systems and shower will also be open.
