BALTIC Paint Parties are a fun, safe and magnificently messy way to celebrate your child’s birthday at BALTIC. These are great for a wide range of ages and enable children to express themselves through a number of different painting activities. Younger children will explore colours, textures and shapes, whilst they paint with brushes, rollers and stamps, not to mention hands and feet!

Paint Parties cost £220 (incl. VAT) for a maximum of 15 children.

Lights, camera, action! BALTIC film making parties are a fun and exciting way to celebrate you child’s birthday at BALTIC. Suitable for a wide range of ages, these customisable parties enable children to express themselves through the planning and creation of their own mini movies. Whether they decide to create a sci-fi or thriller, western or comedy, we have everything you need to make it a blockbuster! They’ll be able to take it in turns to be the director, the actors, the screen writers and camera crew! Everyone is then invited to the VIP Premier before posing for photographs on the red carpet.

Filmmaking Parties cost £150 (inc VAT) for up to 8 children, £220 (incl. VAT) for up to 15.


Celebrate your child’s birthday this year with a BALTIC jewellery making party! Children will design and create their own contemporary jewellery using a mixture of traditional and unusual materials Once the designing and making is done it’s time to reveal the collection either striking a pose on the catwalk or making your own fashion showcase film roll.

Parties cost £150 (incl. VAT) for up to 15 children.


During this beastly BALTIC party, children will become ‘Monster Hunters’ who are on a quest to discover a rare species of monster! They will work together to create a large magical monster out of a mix of materials and unveil this new species to a small audience. But be warned.… this monster might be partial to a tasty grown-up, have hundreds of eyes or a tail as long as a dinosaur.


Parties cost £150 (incl. VAT) for up to 15 children.


Celebrate your child’s birthday with a BALTIC Marvellous Masks party! Children will be able to create different styles of masks whilst exploring different materials to create characters from super heroes to animals or something completely different techniques. If the theatrical takes their fancy there’s a chance for kids to show off their creations in a small masquerade, a tribal boogie, or strike a pose. 

Parties cost £150 (incl. VAT) for up to 15 children.


BALTIC also offers a range of seasonal parties during school holidays based around our changing exhibitions and family activities throughout the year. Please contact us for more details.
