Our Events

We've put together an exciting new programme of weekly and monthly events, giving you the chance to utilise The Collection to its full potential. From storytelling to wellbeing, we have something to suit everyone.

All events are free to attend unless otherwise stated.

Volunteer Led Tours | Daily

Take a journey through our Collection and join one of our volunteers as they expertly guide you on a tour of some of the objects. Discover hidden histories, explore new narratives and gain a different perspective! 

We host volunteer led tours daily at various times.

Burrell Bites | Every Wednesday at 12.30pm
