As we draw closer to our opening date (10 February 2018) the House and Gallery are almost ready for the public. The majority of the collection has now been installed in the House. Two new windows have been added to the former art store, overlooking Northampton Street to allow for additional working space. Some of our staff members are already working full-time at the Castle Street building, and the rest eagerly await our move-in date later this year.
Work in the garden is underway. The path will be re-layed allowing for improved access, overgrown foliage is being cleared and replanting has begun.
Our new welcome desk and cabinets have been installed in the entrance space.We have confirmed the design for the cafe fittings and furniture. The shop fittings continue and our new stock has started to arrive. We had a successful shop clearance sale last month and have launched our shop’s Instagram account to share all the behind the scenes action.
We have welcomed several new staff members and are also looking for a Learning and Development Officer (Maternity Cover), a Retail Assistant and Visitor Assistants to join our team. Find out more and apply today.
