Our priority is keeping you and our staff safe. We’ve updated our policies and risk assessments in line with UK and Welsh Government guidelines. In line with current government regulations and in order to avoid large gatherings of people, we will be limiting numbers visiting the gallery at busy times.

Opening Times:

Our opening times are Wednesday - Saturday 11am - 4pm.

How to visit safely

A booking system will be in place for exhibition openings and specific event days. You will be able to book your time slot for visiting online here. Visitors who have not booked in advance will kindly be asked to queue outside until they can safely enter the gallery.

Face coverings must be worn (unless you are exempt) at all times during your visit.

To maintain social distancing, we may limit the number of visitors allowed in the building at busy times. When you arrive, our staff will advise you whether there is capacity for you to enter immediately or whether you may need to wait for a short while outside.

When waiting outside, please keep your distance from others.

Upon entering please use the hand sanitiser provided and complete the cards provided with your details for Contact Tracing.

For the safety of our staff and visitors, toilets will remain closed to the public.

Purchasing items from the shop or gallery

Mission Gallery can now only accept card payments, contactless where possible. The card machine will be cleaned after each use. We cannot currently accept cash payments. We have installed plastic guard shields at the reception/sales desk. 

Feeling unwell

If you or someone with whom you have recently been in contact is showing symptoms of COVID-19, please postpone your visit to the gallery.

A new lockdown

Should we be required to close again due to a new lockdown being enforced, we may have to close at short notice. Please do not travel to visit us from an area where a lockdown is imposed.

Many thanks for your understanding and support.
