Thanks for your interest in our learning programme for schools. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to our new museum and gallery.

We are taking bookings for the autumn term of 2022 onwards and are busy developing exciting new interactive gallery and artist-led studio sessions exploring our new galleries and refurbished historic house. The new workshops will support the curriculum from Early Years through to 6th Form, including art, textiles, local history, printmaking and science.

A highlight will be our camera obscura situated at the top of our new galleries and bringing Gainsborough’s landscape into the studio. We will also have new exhibition galleries able to host major exhibitions as well as a new Gainsborough gallery. The historic house will become more of a home, housing exhibitions exploring Cedric Morris and John Constable as well as Gainsborough’s life
and love of music.

We can tailor your visit to suit and you are welcome for the whole day, or for a shorter visit. We also offer an outreach programme where we can bring our resources and expertise to you.

“It was a really special day and I have lots of positive feedback from parents. So well done to you and your team!”
