Our next Family Jam will be on Friday10th June 2022! 

Family Jam is a monthly family music event, with a different artist performing a special early evening set especially for children and families as part of Friday Night is Family Night at Z-arts. From nursery rhymes to Queen and everything in between, we have an amazing host of artists reinterpreting their music and musical style for little one in a family-friendly environment. Parents and children can unwind after a hectic week with music and free arts activities for the whole family to get involved in.

This all takes place in Z-café, where hot and cold drinks are available to buy, as well as tasty food including veggie hotdogs!

With a house band and featuring local young musicians, Family Jam is a chance for families to enjoy a relaxed evening of live music from professional artists in a family-friendly environment.

June Family Jam: Soundseeing

Join us for a special edition of Family Jam featuring live music and art making. Imagine a life drawing class but instead of sketching objects or people you’ll be creating artwork in response to the music!

The evening will begin with a short and fun kid-friendly workshop that will show you how you can begin to turn the sounds you hear into beautiful art. NO ART SKILLS REQUIRED!

Drawing material will be provided, but feel free to bring your own if you’d like to.
