Festive opening hours

As we start dusting off our wassail bowls and practising our carols ready for the festive season, make sure you plan your next visit around our revised opening times.

Our administration offices and the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library will close for the holiday period at 5.30pm on Friday 21 December. We will re-open at 9.30am on Wednesday 2 January.

The building will be open for events as advertised in between Christmas and new year, notably for our New Year's Eve Ceiidh.

Our online box office will continue to be available throughout this period. Tickets will not be available to book over the phone, unless the building is open for an event.

If you are attending an event between Christmas and New Year and require information on the day, please call 020 7485 2206, and press 0 to speak to a duty manager.
