COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

COVID-19 update from Southampton City Art Gallery

We’re pleased to announce that we plan to reopen the gallery on 28 May. Our fantastic team are busy behind the scenes making sure cleaning and safety protocols are in place and exhibitions are ready for visitors to safely enjoy once again.

Official opening dates will be dependent on the easing of national lockdown restrictions and any potential local restriction. At this stage we’ll still be operating at a reduced capacity and times to ensure everyone’s safety. The Rule of 6 or 2 households will still apply.
