Our response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – updated
17 March 2020

The situation with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is unprecedented and fast-evolving, and we are continuing to assess and respond to the latest official information with the safety and wellbeing of our team, our visitors, our contributors and our community uppermost.

Changes to our planned re-opening

Today our team has taken the decision not to reopen on Saturday 21 March and to remain closed to the public for the time being.

We will continue to review this in line with any further updates to Government advice.

Our events and screenings will be postponed until further notice.

We will be in touch with those who have booked tickets to events affected by these changes in due course.

In the meantime, we wish to send our admiration and gratitude to Helen and our heartfelt thanks to the wonderful contributors and distributors supporting our spring programme.

What we’re doing

We are looking at digital ways in which we can share Helen’s exhibition and aspects of our wider spring programme with you.

We will be in regular contact with all of our spring contributors, and we will work with them to reschedule or reimagine all postponed activity in due course. 

Please keep an eye on our social media pages as well as our website.

Further updates

Please be assured that we will continue to prioritise the safety and wellbeing of our visitors, our team, all the contributors to our programme and our community.

We will continue to update our website and this message based on our response to the latest advice.

In the meantime, take very good care
