WELCOME BACK

We're ready when you are.

ADVANCE BOOKING

Please book online and in advance. This is to help us manage the number of people in our venues, limit queuing and reduce contact.

SAFETY

The safety of our visitors, staff and students is our number one priority. We’re following the official government guidance to make sure we’re Covid-secure.

NEW MEASURES

We are the same venue but with added social distancing, one-way routes and a contactless experience.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

Our Pavilion Café and externally accessed public toilets are open. The Café is operating a takeaway-only service.

Following local government guidance in relation to Tier 3 restrictions for Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, we regret we must close the Djanogly Gallery, Weston Gallery and the University of Nottingham Museum from Friday 30 October for a four-week period until Friday 27 November inclusive. We look forward to reopening the Galleries and Museum as soon as it is possible to do so.

The Gallery Café remains temporarily closed.

The Djanogly Theatre, Djanogly Recital Hall and all other facilities remain closed for now, however we are encouraged that there are exemptions for theatres and concert halls in the Tier 3 restrictions, meaning that we are able to proceed with our reopening plans for the performance programme, with a limited number of events to socially-distanced audiences resuming from mid-November. Please see the What’s On section of our website for further details.
