Our philosophy embodies the notion that art has the power to make you feel good - which is why during our closure we will continue to share art and cultural events and workshops with you that can be enjoyed from your home.  

Taking time for yourself helps reduce stress and anxiety which is why leisure activities ar- key to improving wellbeing. And even though we’re all staying home and keeping safe, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to get your culture fix from the comfort of your own home. 

Highlights of our digital programme include workshops for young people, adults and families which can be enjoyed by you and your little ones, our popular storytelling for under 5s, live studio tours and talks with artists Sean Henry, Sophie Ryder, Julian Wild and Anne-Katrin Purkiss 

It is important to us that everyone can enjoy our programme so, we will continue to offer free activities across our social media channels and a variety of activities at lower prices for those who could not otherwise afford themWe also offer a weekly Create at Home blog for families packed with creative activities. We are also very pleased to present audio tours of our exhibitions for people with visual impairments.  

As a small thank you to Lightbox Members for their ongoing support during this challenging time we are offering many of our online events for free. We are so grateful for your generosity. It is our 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 hard-hit by the Covid-19 crisis. If you are able to make a donation or consider signing up for membership we would be hugely grateful. 

We hope you enjoy our programme and look forward to welcoming you back to The Lightbox very soon.

Stay Creative. Stay Safe.
