Dress up as an imaginary animal, protest for what you believe in and be inspired by art and artists​

Playing Up is a game for kids and adults to play together. Join a playful, hands-on introduction to live art that encourages children’s creativity, confidence and imagination.

Our assistants will explain how to play the game and give you all the props and materials you need. Then you are free to go off as a family and start playing up around the gallery. All you need to bring is your imagination.

Playing Up is a collaboration between Theatre of Research, Live Art Development Agency (LADA) and Tate Early Years and Family Programme. Visit the dedicated Playing Up website and find out more.

We encourage young people to explore art and idea to take ownership of the gallery.​
