What Exhibitions are on at the Gallery?

The Alfred East Art Gallery has finally reopened to the public, with temporarily reduced opening times.

To keep all our lovely visitors and staff as safe as possible there will be some new safety measures in place at the Gallery, which you can read in the Gallery visitors information.

To begin with, there will be one exhibition on display at a time.

Due to the ongoing situation with Coronavirus and the guidance from Government, all council-hosted events have been cancelled for the foreseeable future.

The Manor House Museum will remain closed to the public for the time being.
