Following the Government’s announcement about the easing of lockdown restrictions the team at the Lichfield Street gallery have been preparing new exhibitions as well as putting measures in place to ensure that the building is safe for both staff and visitors

Measures include track and trace as required by the NHS, a separate entrance and exit and a one-way route around the gallery. Face coverings will need to be worn whilst in the gallery and sanitisation stations will be available. There will be an alternative accessible route available for those who need it.

There is no need to book, we just ask that you please watch the short video below that outlines the changes in place before you visit.

Please note: We would like to inform all visitors that there are building works taking place in the gallery which will relocate the café to a larger ground floor location and create a fully inclusive entrance via St Peter’s passage.

The Gallery and café will remain open during this time and we endeavour to ensure the building works do not impact the visitor experience, however, as this is a live site please bear with us, as at times it maybe noisy and parts of the gallery will be off limits. Staff are on hand at all times to help answer your queries and we are very excited to welcome you back, if you have any comments or questions please email [email protected]

You can also take a quick tour around the gallery by watching the video below.
