Coronavirus Statement

17 Mar 2020

Due to the Government announcement discouraging ‘non essential social contact’ we have taken several decisions concerning the Guildhall:

  • Our Wednesday and Sunday open days are cancelled as of 17th March 2020.

  • Upcoming events are subject to change – we will provide updates on those as soon as we can. Please click here to visit our What’s On page.

  • The Sound Tradition concert due to take place on Saturday 21st March has been rescheduled for Friday 30th October.

  • If you have booked a private event with us please get in touch on to discuss how you would like to proceed.

  • Our 1000 Stories project is still active – if you would like to submit a story for the collection please email

We believe that these measures are the best way we can ensure the safety of our visitors, volunteers, and staff.

Updates will be available on our social media channels (Twitter and Facebook) and website.

On behalf of the Guildhall team we’d like to say, please take care and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Guildhall when this current situation is over.
