Kirkby Gallery reopens its doors

by Alison Cornmell

Kirkby Gallery is set to re-open to the public on Monday 17 May following further easing of the Government’s COVID-19 restrictions.

Upon reopening visitors can enjoy and look forward to a programme of film, art and local history.

Highlights for the 2021 programme include a season of film screenings, a summer of art workshops and courses as well as a special project with Kirkby school children.

Councillor Shelley Powell, Knowsley’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Neighbourhoods said:

“I’m delighted that we’ve re-opened our doors once again after months of closure. However, I’m proud to say that despite being physically closed, the team at Kirkby Gallery has continued to make art available to schools and communities over the last year and our upcoming programme continues to do this.”

Further programme details will be released soon.

Kirkby Gallery will be open from 10am – 4pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. Last entry will be at 3pm. From Monday 21 June, the Gallery will re-open for the whole week, including Saturdays 10am – 1pm.
