Fridays on the Lawn

With the smooth sounds from local musicians floating in the background, free entry, and a selection of your favourite drinks available for purchase from our Lawn Bar, all you need to do is pull up a chair or bring a comfy blanket to sit on - and don't forget those good vibes.

Make a night of it. Visit our current major exhibition, explore the City Collection, and book in for dinner at Palette Restaurant.

Fridays on the Lawn takes place 4-7pm every Friday, with music from 4.30pm-6.30pm.

Food or alcohol is not permitted to be brought to Fridays on the Lawn - but our Lawn Bar and HOTA Cafe is open, and dinner starts at Palette Restaurant from 5pm.
