Venue Reopening News

Welcome Back

From 29 September, we’re delighted to welcome visitors to the gallery for our autumn exhibition programme, as part of our phased reopening of the arts centre.

The first exhibition, Contemplation: Snow Into Water, is a celebration of nature and its calming effect on the mind, curated by Jenny Blyth. In the coming weeks, the gallery will see the return of the Society of Wood Engravers, and a chance to see Philippa James’ 100 Women of Oxford, part of Photo Oxford festival. Our Christmas exhibition features illustrator Korky Paul’s much-loved characters Winnie the Witch and Wilbur.

Entry to the gallery is free, and you don’t need to book a ticket to visit, but we will ask all visitors for a name and contact number on arrival to comply with NHS Test and Trace.

Live events

Whilst it’ll be a while before we can host our usual full-scale programme of theatre, comedy and music, we do have some exciting live events happening over the next few months.

Join us on 10 September for socially-distanced cinema as we celebrate the best of the Kendal Mountain Festival’s adventure films. We’re venturing into the wild on 12 September with WilderNests, a free, outdoor show for families in Cutteslowe Park. Plus, we’re excited to welcome the award-winning comedy night, Jericho Comedy on 26 September with a stand-up showcase.

Keep an eye on the website for the most up to date information about what’s on, including a hand-picked selection of digital events to enjoy from home.

Our front of house team will be back at the front desk to sell tickets in person from 29 September. Until then, please continue to use the website to book tickets, or email contact@thenorthwall.com if you have any enquiries.
