Free family fun – Infinity Pitch at the Baltic

Where to start! The colours, the creativity, the freedom! The new play installation at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art is fantastic and free.

Pester & Rossi have created an amazing space to play by your own rules in the Baltic’s largest gallery up on Level 4. It is perfect for all ages to enjoy. As you enter the room you’re greeted by a barrage of colour, huge inflatables, creation stations, and a transparent pyramid which catches the girls’ eyes they went straight over to climb inside.

You can choose any of the bold colourful sticker shapes to decorate the pyramid anyway you want. My daughters loved it and spent quite some time creating their own little piece of art.

They had some inflatables you could jump on and sink inside off, again another big hit with the girls!

The electric tape what a great idea you could use a roll of and make your own mark on the floor of the gallery, the idea is that then this would help guide others who visit the areas of the room you love.

A huge selection of dressing up is available from caps to full body suits for the more adventurous.

I could list everything you can do but I don’t want to spoil it, honestly just get yourself along you won’t be disappointed! I’ve added lots of photos and a little video to give you an idea of the fun to be had whilst making and doing.

A series of artist-led workshops are also on over the next 3 weeks on various dates more details are available here.

It might seem trivial to some but I was super impressed to see a bucket full of ear defenders by the entrance. We were lucky enough to get to attend a preview this morning before it opened to the public so the room was calm and relaxed, but as the room gets busier during the day I know my eldest would have really appreciated the use of those ear defenders.

The Baltic also have a selection of time and dates available for booking for inclusive access which is designed to be a quieter more relaxed visit all sessions are free but remember booking is essential for the inclusive access and more details for that can be found here.

The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art is located in Gateshead on the south bank of the River Tyne and has some stunning surroundings which I couldn’t help but get a few photos off.

    What a fantastic idea with the ear defenders! More attractions should definitely take note. Looks like a lovely morning.

      It was great fun and yes I totally agree, that little thing of a bucket of ear defenders means a lot more enjoyment to some children. We usually have some with us just in case but of course, sometimes they get left behind.
