In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have put the following measures in place to provide a safe environment when visiting our exhibitions.

What are Jerwood Arts doing differently to ensure visitor safety?

  • The gallery is open between 12pm and 6pm, and 11am and 6pm on Saturdays to allow for travel outside peak times.
  • Hand sanitiser and disposable masks are available to visitors during their visit.
  • Jerwood Arts staff onsite will be wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including face coverings or visors and will be operating under a COVID-19 Risk Assessment.
  • Bench seating, chairs and frequent touch surfaces will be disinfected routinely throughout the day.
  • The Gentleman Baristas Cafe is open for takeaway and table service.

What do I need to do when I visit?

We ask that you:

  • Continue to wear a face covering to protect other visitors and Jerwood Arts staff unless you are exempt.
  • Do not visit if you or anyone you live with is feeling unwell or displaying symptoms consistent with COVID-19.
  • Use the hand sanitiser provided upon entry.
  • Observe social distancing within the exhibition.
