Families at mac
Family Friendly mac
mac has always been a family friendly venue, after all mac started life as a centre for children and young people. As such we strive to make ourselves as friendly and functional as possible.
Unless a child is here for a fully-staffed paid for activity you must be fully responsible for any child in your care.
Feeding Your Child
Please feel comfortable to breastfeed at mac . Should you prefer privacy, a sofa is available in the large baby feeding/change room on the ground floor next to the cafe, but the choice is absolutely yours. We are not able to warm food or bottles for weaning children, but can provide a jug of hot water for you to use. Our cafe offers quality, homemade versions of classic children’s menus and we will soon be introducing kids’ lunch boxes.
Our baby change rooms have space for buggies and a nappy/wipe vending machine is also available in the main ground floor feeding room. We’ve tried to fill them with things you’ll need (hooks/shelves for changing bags, stools, soft mats, paper towels, sanitiser spray etc.)
Access for Buggies
mac's building is now serviced by two lifts; one next to the cinema and arena bar, and the other in Bridges Cafe Bar. These lifts and ramps make the building fully accessible for everyone moving around with wheels!
Things to Do
Whilst our programme is vast, we know there may not always be something specific for kids to do at mac. So we are developing a series of building based activities to ensure our younger visitors are inspired and engaged to become the next generation of arts attenders.
