In order to help protect the health of our staff and visitors during this difficult time, we have closed all of our Galleries. We are aware that some people have bought tickets for upcoming events and exhibitions and we will be in touch as quickly as we can with further information. For more information see our FAQs.

We appreciate your support during this time and hope to see you in the not too distant future. We will post any further updates here and on our social media channels.
