Book your free visit to see Ann Veronica Janssens: Hot Pink Turquoise at the SLG below!

Planning a visit? Here’s what you need to know:

Please pre-book a free, timed slot in advance of your visit. Only a limited number of people are allowed into our buildings so it’s essential that all visitors book a timed slot via the SLG website.  

A small number of walk-up tickets are made available daily, but pre-booking is encouraged, particularly on weekends. 

Slots for later in the autumn will be made available at a later date.

Tickets have a specific start time but once inside you can stay as long as you like.

Reduced opening hours. We are currently operating with reduced opening hours from Wednesday to Sunday, 11am–6pm, with no late-night openings for the time being.  

Our drop-in education programmes are paused while social distancing and other health and safety measures are in place. We will be reviewing this regularly so please check the SLG website and social media channels for regular updates.

 Social distancing is required throughout both SLG buildings. Please keep a two-metre distance from others and observe signage indicating maximum capacities in all our spaces.  

 Please wear a face covering in our spaces unless you are exempt.

Please stay at home if you are feeling unwell. 

Visitors are no longer allowed to mix with people from outside their household or support bubble in any of our indoor spaces.

Visitors may mix with people from outside their household or support bubble in any of our outdoor spaces – Orozco Garden, Fox Garden, cafe outdoor seating, and the Fire Station forecourt. If meeting outside, the maximum group size is 6 people (including children of any age).

The SLG bookshop in the Main Building is open. Please pay by card where possible.  

Enhanced cleaning. Hand sanitiser is available throughout the gallery, along with increased cleaning regimes in toilets and other high use areas.
