Sneaky Peek Tours are a fantastic way to introduce primary aged (4-11) children to the MAC, modern art and theatre through an exclusive tour of all backstage areas of our venue.


Each tour gives groups of ten or more children exclusive access to our stages, back stage areas and dressing rooms, and an opportunity to take part in fun learning activates in each of our three art galleries.

Sneaky peek tours are perfect for groups of children aged 4-11 years. Everyone is welcome, from Primary school classes to out-of-school community or youth groups. 

Visit the Galleries

Sneaky Peek Tours are delivered by specially trained members of our team.

They will show you and your group around the MAC's current exhibition(s), theatre and some backstage areas.

You'll learn what goes on behind the scenes at the MAC, hear about interesting things along the way and get insights into the current artwork on display.

Take a Workshop

Sneaky Peek Tours last approximately 1 hour and cost £3 per child.

You can also combine a Sneaky Peek Tour with a visual art or drama workshop for a total price of £140. 

Visual art or drama workshops can be tailored specifically to your needs - just speak to our Learning & Participation team for more information on what options are available for your group.
