As a result of the recommendations made in government, and in response to increasing concerns relating to the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the difficult decision to close to the public as of Wednesday 18 March, 5.00pm. The building will remain closed until further notice.

The health and safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff is our top priority and, in light of the building's closure, all staff will be working remotely. For all general enquiries, please email [email protected]. Please note this inbox will be monitored during office hours only, from 9.00am – 5.00pm, Monday – Friday.

We will be rescheduling events that are due to take place over the coming months, and will provide more details and new dates once confirmed. If you have booked tickets and are unable to attend the new dates or if we are forced to cancel an event, refunds will be made available. Alternatively, you may choose to donate the cost of your ticket to The Lightbox charity in this very testing time. If you are in a position to do so, it would be hugely appreciated. The coming months will be very difficult financially so please do renew your membership if you are able to help.

We will remain active behind closed doors, highlighting the benefits that art has on wellbeing. Do be on the look-out for fun arts and craft activities using bits and bobs lying around the house, on our digital channels and blog, over the coming weeks.

For now, we wish everyone well and would like to thank you for your continued support during this difficult time. We would also like to extend a special thank you to our volunteers for the continuous support over the past couple of weeks. If you or a family member do feel unwell please follow the advice available online at
