ABOUT THE relaxed openings

On the dates below, noise throughout the exhibitions will be kept to a minimum. A quiet, low-lit space will be available for anyone who would like to take a break.

Our relaxed openings are for all visitors who prefer a quieter environment. They are particularly suited to adults and children with complex support needs, SEND, or those with autism, and their families and carers.

This is an informal opportunity to visit Autograph’s galleries and see the art on display. You can come and leave anytime during the Gallery’s opening hours. We are a medium-sized venue, with two galleries and a studio space. We recommend allowing 30 - 60 minutes for your visit.
