Art workshops


Kirkby Gallery and Prescot Museum will close temporarily from Friday 20 March 2020 until further notice.

This is to support the Government's advice around 'social distancing' in an attempt to help stop the spread of Coronavirus. The closure will help ensure that essential council services can continue, whilst also making sure that resources can be diverted to support vulnerable residents. Online content remains available on the Prescot Museum website and Knowsley Galleries and Museums on Facebook.
