NOTE: Berwick’s Burrell Collection will be open until Sunday 30th December, with the exception of Wednesday 26th December, when the exhibition will be closed. The free exhibition was originally going to close on Dec 16, but due to popular demand, this has been extended by two weeks.
The Berwick Burrrell Collection is the most important art collection in public ownership in Northumberland. Shipping magnate Sir William Burrell bequeathed around 50 paintings and 300 decorative items to Berwick when he retired to nearby Hutton Castle. It features works by Boudin and Maris, ancient Roman and Venetian glass, Japanese imari pottery and Ming porcelain.
Berwick Visual Arts and Woodhorn Trust (Northumberland's museums and archives agency) have come together so that these wonderful artefacts can be shared in the Granary Gallery* at the heart of Berwick, free of charge. This exciting initiative unfolds with a series of exhibitions over a period of three years.
1 Sep - 30 Dec (closed Wed 26th Dec)
Please note: There will be no further guided tours of the exhibition.
