January is a great time to take stock of what works and what doesn’t and we have been very busy sorting out plans for 2019 during these past couple of weeks. Part of that has been looking at our opening times. Sundays just haven’t worked out as we had hoped so with immediate effect we will no longer open on Sundays unless by prior appointment. We still encourage visitors to ring the number on the door of the gallery should we be closed and if available we can be there in five minutes to open up.
Further to this, from February we will move back to opening from Wednesday to Saturday from 10 till 5 each day. Any hours outside of these will require prior notice but all are possible! Everything in the gallery is listed on our website and can be reserved (no payment required) by a few simple clicks and entering in some details. Please do add the delivery address so that we can prepare a quote for shipping if this is required. Alternatively, you can come and collect at your convenience.
Mondays and Tuesday: CLOSED
Wednesday to Saturday: 10:00 to 17:00
We will continue to offer a free wrapping service for any item purchased and advise that these are best ordered in advance so that our expert wrapper can make sure it’s absolutely perfect!
Finally, we are planning a Friends of the Gallery membership, which will gain you first views of works due to arrive, along with a discount on any purchases. Membership would be on an annual basis with a tiered system for discounts and benefits. More information will be available shortly or pop into to see us for a chat!
This will help us to keep the gallery running to the high level we have already achieved and allow us to bring yet more amazing works of art from around the UK to exhibit.
2018 was a difficult year for many high street businesses and we were certainly one of them, from majestic highs to horrible lows. We are much more hopeful for 2019 and would like to thank everyone who continued to support the gallery in 2018.
