*Albert Street Building Updates

Closed for refurbishment from 10/01/22 – 31/03/22

Our Albert St building will be closed from January – March for some exciting refurbishments! We want to make this building more accessible to our communities, so the main structural work involves installing a brand new lift from the ground floor to the upstairs gallery space.

We are also installing a new cafe and updating the shop to host fantastic workshops, a project space and sell locally handmade goods. 

Whilst this work is underway, we have some fantastic exhibitions, events and public interventions happening in alternative spaces across the city, including an exhibition opening at Derby Riverlights, Public Artworks displayed as part of the Vibrancy Project, and workshops taking place at our Charnwood St building.

If you have any questions, please email for more information.

Keeping You Safe

We want to make sure you feel safe entering our buildings and would like to outline some safety measures we have implemented in preparation for your visit.


Before You Visit
  • We are reducing the capacity of our building and promoting social distancing. You do not need to book a time slot in advance of your visit. 
  • Risk assessments have been carried out for both staff and visitor operations. These are regularly reviewed and take into account the latest guidance from the government and Public Health England. 
  • In line with current government guidance, groups no larger than 6 people except for groups from up to 2 households, may attend at any one time.
  • Please remember to stay at home if you’re feeling unwell, or have been in contact with someone who has coronavirus, and follow NHS coronavirus guidelines.

Any contact details we collect will only be kept for 21 days, and we will only share them with NHS Test and Trace if asked in the event of a visitor(s) or member(s) of the team testing positive for coronavirus.
