The Barber galleries are now closed.
We reopened our wonderful galleries to visitors on 23 September. Since then, more than 1,500 of you have enjoyed the tranquil and restorative experience on offer, and it has been really fantastic to welcome you back in person to the Barber. In line with the additional government restrictions for England that come into force on Thursday 5 November, like all English museums and galleries, we closed at 5pm on 4 November and shall remain closed for gallery visits until at least 3 December, pending further guidance.
In the meantime, we will be keeping busy with developing our online activities; absorbing and varied new content will added regularly to the website, so please make the most of the many opportunities to stay connected to the Barber until we can welcome you back in person again.
Very best wishes
Thursday 5 November
