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

Have you ever wanted to find out more about an object, above and beyond our gallery interpretations?

Join us every Wednesday at 12.30pm for Burrell Bites, a themed weekly session which will take the lid off some of the histories and contexts of our most loved objects. 

Burrell Folk Club - Dates coming soon!

We're bringing live traditional music to the Burrell Collection with our new folk club.

Join in with one of our drop-in sessions and take some inspiration from the objects within our collection, filling our space with your sounds! 

These sessions are hosted in 3 month blocks, dates of our upcoming sessions will be released soon.

Sculpture and Sketch | Saturday at 10.30am

Join us for an informal drop-in sketch session inspired by our extensive sculpture collection. Explore the works of legendary artists such as Rodin, Epstein and others in a relaxed drawing environment.

Participants are welcome to stay for as long as they wish, and spaces will be on a first come, first served basis.
