Tuesday 17 March 2020: In light of the government's announcement yesterday about avoiding non-essential social contact, Norden Farm Centre for the Arts will be closed to the public from Wednesday 18 March.
The decision to close has been made with the best interests of our customers, audiences and visitors in mind, and while we sincerely regret any inconvenience and disappointment this may cause, our responsibility to play a part in delaying the spread of COVID-19 must come first.
From today our staff will be working hard to contact customers who have tickets for events, films and workshops over this period. Customers can receive a credit to their Norden Farm account or a refund. As a small, independent charity, Norden Farm are also inviting audiences to donate the cost of theirs ticket to Norden Farm.
Many classes and workshops have moved online, you can find a comprehensive list here.
