The free exhibition will be open in The Dye House from the 23rd of March 2024 until the 19th of April 2024 inclusive, with opening times from 10:00 to 16:00.

Closed Mondays and Tuesdays (except for the school Easter Holiday). Please note that the site will be closed Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27 March for a private visit by the Queen.
