In light of the government announcement at the weekend, we will sadly be closing to the public from 5 November – 2 December.

In our short time being reopen since the last lockdown, we have hugely appreciated the support we have received from members, visitors, and volunteers. It is this community that is helping to sustain us at this very difficult time. The Lightbox is a charity that depends on its income from admissions and memberships and we have been financially extremely hard-hit by the Covid crisis. If you are able to make a donation or consider signing up to membership we would be hugely grateful.

We intend to reopen on the 3 December with our blockbuster show Raphael: Prince Albert's Passion. This will be on until 31 January so still plenty of time to view the only exhibition in the UK that is marking the 500th anniversary of Raphael's death if you have not yet had a chance to do so. Updates will be posted on our website and social channels when bookings reopen.

During the closure, we will be staying creative with Lightbox news and activities on our digital channels and we look forward to welcoming you back once the lockdown lifts.

If you had a booking with us for the closure period we will be in touch with you via email.

Thank you again for your support.
