Coronavirus Policy and Updates

Find out more about our Coronavirus policy and the latest support available.

Building closure

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, our building will be closed to the public as of Tuesday 17 March 2020. All exhibitions and events, due to take place between 17 March – 31 August will be cancelled with immediate effect. Payments taken for cancelled activities will be refunded as soon as possible.

Our responsibility is to keep as many people as possible safe and well and temporary closure is the best way to do this. We are working remotely and redeploying our resources where possible to help the communities which we serve.
