Family Activity Trails
Tuesday – Friday 9.30-11.30 & 2-4pm
For families there are three different kids activity trails around the building (aimed at the Under 3s, 3-7 and 7-12 year olds). The trails were devised by local families for you!
Around Stirchley Baths you will find evidence of the building’s history. There are memories written on the walls, photographs, old notices and objects to find. There are also original details on the building, shapes and patterns which you will need to look for.
For younger children there is a key hunt.
All week Change Kitchen will offer a kid-friendly menu, with special offers on combined cakes and drink purchases. If you haven’t discovered the cafe yet, it’s the perfect opportunity!

Friday 28 October. Sugar skulls mask-making From 2pm-4pm. Film screening at 2.30pm
Join us in an early celebration of the Mexican Day of the Dead Festival in our fabulous cinema room.
Colour in your own sugar skull mask and then sit down to enjoy this 3D animation (in the words of The Observer) “which uses Day of the Dead celebrations to lead us from the land of the living to the lands of the Remembered (joyous, vivacious) and the Forgotten (hellishly grey), where deities La Muerte and Xibalba are locked in passionate struggle, while a warrior and a musician battle for the heart of a super-independent heroine. It’s refreshingly sparky fare, boasting eye-catching design (wooden toys inspire CG magic), musical weirdness (Radiohead will never sound the same again) and proper laugh-out-loud jokes for young and old alike.”
Feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks, and the cafe will be open too.
Watch the trailer below!
In the Mexican town of San Angel, Manolo (Diego Luna), Maria (Zoë Saldana) and Joaquin (Channing Tatum) have been friends ever since childhood. Although their lives have taken different paths — Maria was sent to Europe, Joaquin joined the military, and Manolo studied to become a bullfighter — one thing remains the same: Manolo and Joaquin both want to marry Maria. Little does the trio know that battling husband-and-wife deities have made a high-stakes wager on the love triangle’s outcome.
No need to book. Just turn up.
