Opening Hours

We hope that you are keeping safe and looking after each other over this difficult time.

 

To protect our community, the gallery building will remain closed until further notice. Our online programme will continue to be updated over the next few weeks with free live-streamed talks and online content. The virtual reality version of our current exhibition L— A City Through Its People can be viewed here: www.openeye.org.uk/whatson/vr-l-a-city-through-its-people/

 

We recognise that isolation may be a serious health concern over the winter period, and our team will continue to work from home to provide a community resource to everyone who wishes to connect with us. We will continue to find ways to safely bring people together digitally and keep opportunities for conversation and connection open.

 

We would like to thank you for your support throughout 2020, and we look forward to the time when it is safe to welcome you back to the gallery.

 

You can find out your local guidance here: www.gov.uk/find-coronavirus-local-restrictions

 

Thank you: stay safe and keep looking after each other.
