Our priorities remain the safety and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers. 

Staff will continue to work on site every day for security and maintenance, as well as remotely, and can be contacted by phone or email.

Whilst the Art Gallery and Museum are closed remember to follow us on our social media channels, sign up to our e-newsletter and check our website for content and updates. 

As a charity we need your help. With our doors closed, we’re losing vital income. Please support the Museum through a donation, by becoming a Friend if you’re able.

Thank you in advance for your continued support – we look forward to welcoming visitors back soon.
