COVID-19 Coronavirus – Tuesday 17 March 2020

Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our community – our staff, volunteers, trustees, those we work worth with, and importantly our visitors and participants.

Given updated Government advice on Monday 16 March 2020, for people to avoid non-essential contact, including avoiding pubs, clubs, theatres and public gatherings, we have taken the decision to close Castlefield Gallery until further notice.

This means we will be postponing the opening of our exhibition, Soft Bodies and all exhibition-related events.


Whilst our gallery and premises are closed to the public, we are identifying ways to continue to work with our participants, especially individuals we are delivering support and development programmes for. Our team will be contacting you over the coming days to share alternative plans and updates with you.

If you fall unwell, displaying COVID-19 symptoms and have visited our gallery and premises in the last seven days (March 9 – March 16 2020), please do let us know so we can take any necessary precautions.

You can still contact us with any inquiries by emailing

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

For further updates please keep an eye on our website,
