This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

A programme of dramatic live events and free, interactive activities. Now in its fourth year, this major arts festival celebrates extraordinary moments of fusion between different art forms such as performance, film, installation and music.

This year's festival is inspired by the opening of a new wing of displays, Energy and Process, which explores Arte Povera, Post Minimalism and their legacy of merging art and life together by using humble, everyday materials and viewer participation.

Visitors of all ages will be invited to experience music, performance and workshops that illuminate the ideas and spirit behind this art movement and to play a part in iconic art works by renowned artists such as Robert Morris and Michelangelo Pistoletto.

To celebrate UBS Openings: Long Weekend 2009, Tate Modern Cafe 2 is offering a special menu where kids under the age of 12 eat for free when accompanied by an adult ordering a meal. All families need to do is ask for the kids eat free deal and quote the password 'DIY' (as in 'Do it Yourself', which is the theme of the whole event, summing up the spirit of Arte Povera).

Executive Head Chef Sean Davies has created menus that are sure to appeal to younger visitors, offering a great selection of dishes that you can rest-assured do not contain any nasty additives.

Accompanying adults will be offered excellent value set menus that have been created using only the highest quality ingredients. At Tate Modern, Cafe 2 is offering a set price lunch at 13.95. The offer is valid for children aged 12 or under and is for one child eating with one accompanying adult. The offer is available 22 May -25 May subject to availability.
