What you’ll do

Lights Up sessions are an opportunity to explore our exhibition ‘The Cult of Beauty’ with brighter and more even lighting conditions across the gallery.

A digital guide with audio description and BSL videos, visual story, sensory map and large-print guides are available for use in the gallery, and staff are on hand for additional support.

These Lights Up sessions are drop-in. You can arrive at any time during the four-hour session.

During each session there will also be a 30-minute audio-described tour of the exhibition. You will need to book a ticket to join a tour.
