Following the most recent government updates we are pleased to announce Arts Centre Washington will fully reopen to the public from 1pm on 18th May 2021.

Our Courtyard Café / Bar and Courtyard studios are also now open to the public too.

We have missed our visitors and look forward to welcoming you back soon – find out more about what you can see on your visit here

Before you visit, we recommend you check out our Plan Your Visit pages to read about the measures we have in place to keep visitors safe. Or watch our pre-visit information video.

Thank you to everyone who donated or credited their tickets during this time, your continued support means a lot to us.  

We hope you enjoyed our digital content during the closure – we were so pleased to be able to share a small part of our programme with you all. Don’t worry if you’re not quite ready to come back yet, we will continue to share our exhibition programme and activities online too.  

If you have any queries, please contact us on  [email protected] 

Thank you again for your support during this difficult time. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
