We’re currently closed to the public

Unfortunately, we had to close our doors in March due to the developing situation with coronavirus. It meant we had to cancel the remaining classes from our spring term as well as the exhibitions we had booked in at Courtyard and also Hertford Theatre.

We hope to reopen our doors as soon as possible but in the meantime please enjoy our website and follow along with the latest news via our social media channels
