This simple guide and case study on restaurants and refreshments is part of a series that supports the Family Arts Standards that have been developed by the Family Arts Campaign and the Family and Childcare Trust and provides guidance on how best to welcome families to arts organisations. When consulting families about the Family Arts Standards food was a hot topic and it can be a deciding factor as to whether families visit an event or activity.
Case Study: CUBE café bar at Déda
The CUBE café bar at Déda is popular with families who use the café regularly. Some are visiting Déda for dance events and activities, others come just to use the café. By expanding their offer outside of the main Déda programme they attract lots of new families into the building and boost income for the café.
The café design is bright and spacious, so families can enjoy the space and move around easily.
