Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, the safety of our visitors has remained our utmost priority.  For those of you who have visited Oriel Myrddin Gallery since we reopened in August, you will have seen all the new safety procedures that we’ve put in place to ensure your visit with us is as safe as possible. We have been delighted to welcome you back and are incredibly grateful for your consideration and cooperation in following the new visiting guidelines

Following the Welsh Government’s announcement to introduce a ‘firebreak’ lockdown due to the increase of COVID-19 cases in Wales, Oriel Myrddin Gallery will be closing its doors at 3pm this Friday 23 October. We will reopen on Tuesday 10 November with our Winter exhibition and look forward to seeing you all then.

It is a requirement by law for us to collect contact tracing details (your name and a contact telephone number). If you are not happy to provide these details, we’re sorry but we cannot allow you to enter the building.

Please wait at the gallery entrance before entering. We’ve limited the number of visitors allowed in the gallery and shop at any one time, to maintain social distancing. Our staff will allow you in as soon as it is safe to do so.

Three visitors are allowed in the gallery at one time or two households.
