Everything you need to know for your visit to The Point

The Point, 16 South Parade, Doncaster, DN1 2DR

The Point on South Parade in the centre of Doncaster is open to all.

Once inside you’ll find a gallery showing a programme of contemporary exhibitions and a cosy cafe where you can meet friends. We host creative workshops for adults, young people and families and have rooms for hire events and meetings.

We have created an FAQ guide for families thinking of paying us a visit, which should hopefully answer any questions you have about bringing your children to activities at The Point.

We now use Eventbrite so you can book tickets for workshops easily. Please use Eventbrite (rather than through The Point) to book places on our Family Workshops. It’s very easy – you just need to set up an account with your email address on Eventbrite the first time that you use it. You can see all of our upcoming events in one place here.

If you have any questions about our Eventbrite online booking system, please read this darts at The Point – Eventbrite guide.
