Opening of Penarth's Turner Gallery delayed due to coronavirus restrictions


The opening of Penarth's Turner Gallery has been delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus restrictions.

It was announced in November that Penarth's Turner House Gallery was set to open again in 2021, following two years of discussions with Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales.

But now, ongoing restrictions mean the gallery cannot open as planned on 24th January.

In a statement released on Thursday, The Turner House said "We are very excited about bringing the Turner House to Penarth but as you will know, ongoing restrictions mean the gallery cannot open as planned."

"Whilst this is disappointing for all of us, we are confident that you will understand that this small delay is a necessary step to help keep our community safe in unprecedented times."


"We have been in regular contact with our programme partners and we pleased to say that all planned exhibitions and events will be able to take place in due course, including the upcoming Hayward touring exhibition of works by Eduardo Paolozzi."

"In the meantime, we will keep you updated on the development of the new gallery spaces and share highlights of our special permanent exhibition which documents the history of The Turner House."

"Thank you for all of your kind message and support. Stay safe, and we look forward to welcoming you soon."
