Exhibitions. New writing. Concert commissions. Academic research. Public events, in venues and online. And at the core of everything, preserving and promoting our extensive Anthony Burgess archive.
Your donation to the Burgess Foundation supports our mission to promote the life and work of Anthony Burgess in so many ways.
Following UK government advice about avoiding pubs, restaurants and social venues, we are sad to announce the temporary closure of the Burgess Foundation’s café, exhibition space and archive.
With effect from 17 March 2020, the building will no longer be open to the public from 10am to 3pm. The duration of this closure period will depend on the wider situation, which is currently unclear.
This does not affect the Burgess Foundation’s other activities: our programme has moved online, as there is plenty of Burgess to talk about in 2020.
The health of the public and our staff is paramount, and although we take this decision with a heavy heart, it’s the only responsible thing to do.
Please be assured that the Burgess Foundation will re-open to the public as soon as it is safe to do so.
If you have any questions about our temporary closure, please email email@example.com
Stay well, droogs.
