THE Towner Art Gallery will close from Thursday in response to the advice from the Government regarding COVID-19.

But it will be open from 10.00am to 5.00pm this Tuesday and Wednesday (November 3 and 4) with both exhibitions – Towner International and Art, Life and Us: Christine Binnie, Jennifer Binnie and the Towner Collection.

Admission is free for both and the cafe and shop also remain open.

The Towner posted: “During our closure period, our exhibitions, cinema and events programme – both on-site and off-site – will sadly not go ahead as planned.

“Whilst our building is closed, we remain committed to our role as a valuable community resource and we will explore ways to connect with and inspire everyone digitally.

“We encourage you to keep visiting our website and following our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook channels where we will provide updates and make new digital content available as frequently as possible.”
