Alongside our permanent galleries we have a programme of changing temporary exhibitions.

Whenever we can, we will create a unique workshop linked directly to the exhibition, giving us the opportunity to explore different themes and often work with the exhibitors themselves. Keep checking this page to find out what we have to offer!

Coming soon:

The Snowman™ and the Snowdog Sat 23 Nov – Sun 19 Jan

Follow the wondrous adventures of The Snowman™ and The Snowdog, with over 40 original illustrations from the film in this exciting festive exhibition.
