The Whitworth, The University of Manchester, Oxford Road, Manchester, M15 6ER – Visit Now
As for now, in the interests of public and staff safety, there will be six exhibitions on display and the touring gallery space will be closed. Similarly, the on-site shop will remain closed until further notice, but an online shop will be launched in the autumn, selling an array of products that complement everything the gallery has to offer – the collections, the park, the programme and the people.
Prebooked tickets are preferred, so staff can keep track of numbers, but walk-ups will be allowed in some form, providing space and the necessity of reduced numbers allow. The opening hours are pared back to 11 am to 4 pm, Wednesday to Sunday and The Whitworth’s popular café will be open during these reduced hours. Understandably, school groups will have to wait a while longer before they can visit The Whitworth.
Despite these measures, the open, airy layout of The Whitworth means all exhibition spaces, bar the back galleries, will be open, meaning art-lovers can look forward to a rich and endlessly fascinating summer.
