Our family-friendly offer

We want the whole family to enjoy their trip to artsdepot and have prepared the following information to help you plan your visit.


  • Baby changing facilities are available in unisex toilets on levels 2, 3 and 4.
  • Our building has step-free access throughout, making it fully accessible for buggies.
  • During performances we have a buggy park outside the auditorium. This is monitored by a steward but it's best to take any valuables in with you.

Food & Drink

  • Our cafe offers a range of tasty and nutritious food including Ella's Kitchen organic baby meals for little ones. During family shows children's lunchboxes are available for £4.
  • High chairs are available in the cafe.
  • We are happy to heat up baby milk during cafe opening hours.


  • Age guidelines are listed for all shows, where applicable.
  • We try to provide as much information as possible about the content of shows. If you have any queries, please contact the Box Office.
  • For most family performances, children under 18 months are considered 'babes in arms'. They don't need a ticket and are not allocated as seat as they can sit on the lap of their parent or guardian. They may be asked to leave if they become distressed and cause disruption to performers or other audience members. You are welcome to re-enter the auditorium once they have settled.
  • Children under 12 must be accompanied by a grown-up.

If you have any questions while you're here please don't hesitate to contact a member of staff; we're happy to help.

Soft Play

The soft play area is now situated in a new space on Level 2, around the corner from the cafe. Created especially for our littlest visitors, this dedicated space features:

  • New, improved soft play
  • Book corner
  • A chalkboard wall
  • Space for grown-ups to relax


We are committed to making sure everyone can enjoy our facilities. If you'd like to discuss any access requirements before you visit, please call our Box Office team on 020 8369 5454. And if you need any assistance while you're here, just ask a member of staff, we're happy to help.
