Creating successful family friendly programming

By: The Audience Agency


This guide summarises the contents of a family friendly forum which took place in February 2011 where ideas and learning around family friendly initiatives were shared. You’ll find a checklist of things to think about when programming for families, useful family friendly partner organisations and links to case studies from the participating organisations who shared their success stories.

Under 5s
Storytelling sessions have been very successful with under 5s.
Some examples:
• People’s History Museum holds storytelling sessions with puppets called “The
Little PHM”: http://www.phm.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/01-PHMEvents-

• IWMN also holds storytelling sessions for under 5’s:
