Schools’ Gallery Visits

As part of our refurbishment in 2012, we created a new art gallery in the foyer of the theatre building.

School groups coming to the theatre to see a show (Shows coming up at Half Moon) can arrive up to 45mins before the performance starts to allow the children chance to look round the gallery. Alternatively, schools can book to come along at another time that is suitable for them. We have a short gallery trail activity for the children to complete when they are here, if that is appropriate for the age group.

Due to space restrictions, we can only allow one school to occupy the gallery space at a time. Please contact us in advance if you would like to book a slot to look around the gallery.

We have a special programme for Tower Hamlets primary schools in the academic year 2017/18, generously supported by The Finnis Scott Foundation. Find out more in the document below:

The July/August exhibition slot is open to schools. In July and August 2014 we exhibited a series of work by students at Langdon Park School. In July and August 2015 we exhibited work by students at George Green’s School. In July and August of 2016 we will be exhibiting archive material as part of our Stages of Half Moon project. A school exhibition will be back in the summer of 2017 with work by students at St Paul’s Way Trust School and Bishop Challoner Catholic Federation of Schools.

These are two examples of the Langdon Park School students’ work:
