We’re really sorry, but the Grimshaw exhibition in the Art Gallery and the West Wing of the Rotunda Museum are currently closed due to water leaks following recent heavy rainfall. We’re working to open them again as soon as possible – thanks for your understanding.

Due to the weather, the Christmas Magic Lantern Show has been postponed.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused. If you booked a ticket for this event a refund has been issued. We will look to reschedule a Magic Lantern event in the new year.

Step back in time to experience an 1880-1910 magic lantern show of stories, songs and adverts. We’re delighted to welcome Dr Nick Hiley, a magic lantern collector and enthusiast who will take you on an illuminating journey using a special selection of slides from his collection.
