As well as the permanent collection of Modern British Art, visitors can treat mum to an opportunity to see the work of the ground-breaking designer Lucienne Day in an exhibition of her revolutionary textiles, alongside furniture designed by her partner Robin Day in Robin and Lucienne Day: Design and the Modern Interior (until 26 June 2011). Alongside is a display of memorabilia marking 60 years since the 1951 Festival of Britain which launched the Day's careers. A Tonic to the Nation: The 1951 Festival of Britain runs until 8 May 2011.

When visitors have had their cultural fill, they can treat mums to afternoon tea with a luxurious twist at the Gallery restaurant Field & Fork. Mums can indulge in a free Gallery afternoon tea (worth £13.95) when joined by two paying family members. For an extra special treat, the restaurant is also offering a deluxe Champagne Afternoon Tea at £21.00 per person. Champagne will also be available by the glass on the day for £6, a perfect way to toast the day! Prebooking is required for afternoon teas, and visitors will need to specify which Teas are required. Afternoon teas are from 2.30pm - 4.30pm. The restaurant closes at 5pm. Please pre-book by calling 01243 770827.

For something special to mark the day, there is a choice of unique and charming gifts on offer at the Pallant House Gallery Gift Shop.
