Relaxed Opening – Sun 16 Sep 2018

White structured roof with glass panels

Date: Sunday 16 September 2018, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Venue: York Art Gallery

Our Relaxed Openings are designed for visitors who would prefer a quieter visit to the art gallery.

The gallery provides a tranquil, spacious environment for visitors to explore without the need to worry about extreme light and sound levels, confined spaces, or large crowds. Our building is fully accessible (including the cafe, shops, toilets and outside space), and our Welcome Team have received training in assiting visitors with additional needs.

There are plenty of areas where you can sit down and relax, and a designated quiet space should you need it. Our Welcome Team will be happy to help with any queries you may have.

For more information about accessibility, please visit our Access page here.

The event is free for visitors with autism, dementia, visual impairments or similar issues. Carers and children under 16 will also be admitted for free. Accompanying members of a group will be admitted for £4, and standard admission is £7.50. There is no need to book ahead.

If you require any further information about this event, please email enquiries@ymt.org.uk or phone 01904 687687.
