Following the Government’s update, we can confirm that Galleries will now be operating on a partly closed basis.

Galleries provide access to vital services such as pharmacies, supermarkets and banks, which will remain open to meet essential community needs as permitted by the Government.

As some of these essential services can only be reached through the centre, we will ensure all our visitors can access them while supporting those retailers who need to stay open.

Individual store times may vary so please check with them before setting off.

A small number of our team will be on hand to make sure the centre remains a clean and safe place to visit. If you are visiting the centre, you must follow the UK Government’s rules and guidelines on good hygiene and social distancing to protect yourself and others.

We would like to thank our fantastic team who are working very hard in very challenging circumstances, to support our retailers, serve our communities and take care of one another. Our thoughts are with everyone during this difficult time.

Please keep an eye out for our social media updates, and we hope you all stay safe and healthy.
