Our events and tours are currently on hold, but don’t miss our series of free artist-led Live Making Workshops taking place on our @Hello_Towner Instagram account every Thursday at 2.00pm.

Art Store Tour 1

Guided by a member of our knowledgeable gallery team, learn the stories behind artworks in Towner’s collection of nearly 5000 works – from the original Victorian ‘Towner bequest’ that launched the gallery almost a century ago, to recent acquisitions by contemporary artists.

Key artists such as Eric Ravilious will always feature and there is flexibility for visitors to make specific requests, ensuring no two tours are ever the same. These hour-long tours offer a fascinating introduction to the Towner Collection.
