Families come celebrate the festive season with a variety of Moomin-themed activities across the Gallery:


Meet a Moomin
11am — 12pm, 2 — 3pm & 4 — 5pm

Have you ever met a Moomin? Now’s your chance! Polka Theatre’s Moomin puppets have come out of hibernation especially to say hello! Enjoy a one-on-one experience meeting these beloved creatures and of course Polka Theatre’s skilful puppeteers!

Store Places for Love
10am — 5pm

Writing about her Christmas traditions as a child, Jansson described her family’s glass bauble as “store places for love”. Now it’s your turn to fill a bauble with trinkets and messages of love for friends and family.

Dear Santa Claus
10am — 5pm

Have you written your letter to Santa Claus yet? Help yourself to some materials, and write and decorate your letter to him – maybe you’ll even get a reply…

Snorkmaiden Style
10am — 5pm

Style yourself like Snorkmaiden and make a flower crown to wear proudly. The Sackler Centre is our designated quiet space, where you can make a crown and take a break from the busyness of the gallery.

Scandinavian Stories
10.20am, 11.30am, 1.30pm & 3.30pm (Workshop length: 40 mins)

Get lost in the Scandinavian folk tales that Tove would have grown up with as a child. Maybe you’ll even hear about the creatures that could have been the inspiration for the Moomins…

Make Some Noise

Workshop times: 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm & 4pm (Workshop length: 45 mins)

Explore the art of creating sound for film with the School of Noise. Make your own soundtrack for a piece of Moomin film and play it back!

Who Will Comfort Toffle?

Workshop times: 11am, 1pm, 2.30pm & 3.45pm (Performance length: 45 mins)

Go on a theatrical journey with Freshwater Theatre Company exploring the life and work of Tove Jansson. Maybe you’ll even be called on to take part in the story yourself…

As no gathering is complete without a suitable feast, Fine & Scandi will be serving up Scandinavian street food treats.
