Managing groups in the galleries

We regret that the Gallery can only accommodate one school class at a time. Lunch facilities are offered to groups booking workshops. Please allow one adult for every eight primary age pupils and one adult for every ten secondary

Self-guided groups

These must be booked in advance to control numbers. Normally self-led groups will receive a volunteer welcome, can deposit coats and bags and borrow clipboards. A charge is made for use of the lunch room.

Planning a visit

A prior visit to the Gallery is recommended and risk assessments available on request. A half hour “advice session” with the Learning Officer is bookable during term times on Tuesdays after 4pm.
