Covid–19 (Coronavirus)

The Barber Institute is currently closed until further notice as part of the UK lockdown to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 (coronavirus). 

All exhibitions, concerts and events have been postponed or cancelled, and visitors who had purchased tickets for events after 20 March 2020 should now have received refunds.

If you have not received a refund, please contact us at – staff are currently working from home and this inbox is checked regularly.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to being able to welcome visitors again when we reopen.

In the meantime, we’re working on exciting new content for you to enjoy on our website and social media, so keep in touch with the Barber (and your other favourite cultural collections and places) on FacebookInstagram and Twitter – and visit our collection and exhibitions virtually here on our website too.
