About Open Sundays

Open Sundays is our vibrant family programme held every Sunday morning. These sessions offer a variety of drop-in art workshops, with artists and themes changing weekly to provide a fresh and engaging experience each visit. We enhance our lineup on the first Sunday of every month with interactive sessions that might include anything from storytelling performances to yoga sessions for families.

Entry to Open Sundays is included with general admission. Coinciding with our free visiting hours for Ealing residents, families from the London Borough of Ealing can enjoy these activities at no cost upon presenting proof of address. Children outside the borough are also welcome to join for free when accompanied by a paying adult. Join us to explore the manor and its exhibitions while engaging in creative family fun. Advance booking recommended.
