There’s plenty to keep families entertained at Quad in Derby during this half-term week.

Paddington is back by popular demand as a Cine Kids film screening. Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins star as Mr and Mrs Brown alongside Peter Capaldi, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent, with Ben Whishaw providing Paddington with his voice.

Paddington (PG) screens daily at QUAD until Sunday, February 15. Cine Kids screenings are family friendly films showing daily during school holidays. Please check the QUAD website for film screening times. All tickets are £3.50 for Cine Kids Club members, Cine Kids family membership is available at QUAD box office for a one-off fee of £12.

DigisQUAD digital arts activities for young people aged 12-16 years returns with its popular Creative Coding workshop. Join one of QUAD’s digital artists to explore the connections between code and art; and learn how to write code to create your own digital masterpieces. DigisQUAD: Creative Coding takes place on Wednesday and Thursday (February 11-12), from 1.30pm until 4pm. Places are limited, children can be left unaccompanied during sessions, but any children with additional support needs should come with care support.

Alongside the half-term events, QUAD has some regular Family Friendly Activities that occur on a weekly basis. Lego Saturday is free and takes place very Saturday from 11am until 4pm in the Family Friendly Resource area just outside QUAD Gallery. Lego Saturday is a chance for children aged three and above (and grown-ups!) to come and have a play with Lego. All children should be accompanied.
