Talks and Tours

Gallery talks

Our monthly lunchtime talks and tours are a good way to find out more about exhibitions, collections and specialist exhibitions. Talks are free, informal and last around 40 minutes with time for discussion afterwards.

Our talks are delivered by curators, artists, volunteers and specialists.

There is no need to book. If you are bringing a group of more than five please contact the gallery on 0161 770 4742 beforehand.
