Must-see exhibition will reopen on Monday


Banbury Museum and Gallery confirms bookings now being taken for specially extended run

After months of waiting the chance to visit Banbury Museum and Gallery’s must-see Portrayals exhibition is just days away.

Following yesterday’s government confirmation on the next steps on the roadmap out of lockdown, the museum has confirmed they will be able to welcome people back from next Monday.

The highly anticipated Portrayals exhibition started before Christmas but was forced to close when lockdown began.   The exhibition had been due to finish in March but, after weeks of the exhibition period were lost to lockdown closures, the museum managed to extended to run until July 4th.

Portrayals brings together more than 45 original paintings and drawings by some of the country’s most celebrated twentieth century and contemporary artists, including Barbara Hepworth, L.S. Lowry, and Chris Ofili.    The specially curated exhibition is most ambitious display Banbury Museum has ever staged and the first time so many works by artists of this stature can be viewed together in Banbury.

Bookings to visit the exhibition started being accepted again this morning.
