Gallery @ Half Moon

Children’s Art Week

Half Moon Theatre are celebrating Children’s Art Week, which this year runs across three weeks from Monday 29 June to Sunday 19 July 2020. 

As our gallery is presently closed, for each week of Children’s Art Week, you can access a different exhibition from our archive which connects with the theme of that week. Take a look at the images from the exhibition and complete our Gallery Trail. You can also access videos of the artist speaking about their work and how they create it.



Following the UK Government advice about Coronavirus, all performances and activities at Half Moon Theatre are currently suspended until further notice.


We are extremely sorry for the disruption, and will be in touch with all ticket holders and participants. Thank you for your patience.


During this time, we’ve launched Half Moon Theatre at Home, offering families free access to children’s theatre online. Productions for young people will be made available at until Sunday 19 July 2020.


Half Moon Theatre is a charity and ticket sales are one of our sources of funding. We recognise that this is a difficult time for many of us. However, if you are able to consider making a donation, it would be hugely appreciated.

AboveandBelow-gallery-3-portraitGallery @ Half Moon is our exciting space for local artists to display their work in the foyer of our children’s theatre. Come and view a range of different styles, all suitable for children and young people.

The art gallery is free to visit and is open during the theatre opening hours. Beneath some of the artwork, there are chalkboards for visitors of all ages to make their own responses. You can write a message or draw a picture and leave it for others to enjoy. We also have an art cart to enable children to do their own drawings and collages.

For all our exhibitions, we provide an art trail for children to complete appropriate for Explore/Discover Arts Award and a series of special events and workshops for schools and community groups. So for example, school groups visiting the theatre for a performance can arrive 45 mins before the show so the children can complete the art trail. Find out more.

Developed as part of our Capital Refurbishment Project, Half Moon has created an exciting opportunity to support to the artistic community by inviting local artists to showcase their work
for free.

We are always looking for artists to exhibit for 3 month periods. We particularly like to hear from artists who live or work in Tower Hamlets. Works must be of a mixed-scale and suitable for a family audience. All works should be available for purchase and will be subject to a small commission
if sold.
