In the light of the Prime Minister’s advice earlier this week about avoiding pubs, clubs and social venues, we were sad to announce the closure to the public of the Burgess Foundation’s café, exhibition space and archive.
This means from March 17th 2020 we will no longer be open 10am—3pm on weekdays. How long the closure lasts is dependent on the wider coronavirus situation, much of which is currently unclear.
This does not affect Burgess Foundation activities: our programme moves online as there is plenty of Burgess to talk about in 2020.
This also does not affect scheduled events in our engine room, although organisers are generally choosing to postpone their events: you should check their web channels for up-to-date news.
The health of the public and our staff is paramount, and although we take this decision with a heavy heart, it’s the responsible thing to do. Other Manchester venues, including our neighbours at Home, have taken similar decisions.
