Mixed arts venue QUAD has announced a date for its reopening, subject to further changes in government guidelines.


The Market Place venue has said it is planning to fully reopen to the public from Monday 17th May.

Derby’s centre for art and film is home to a three-screen cinema, an art gallery showing the best in contemporary visual arts, digital workshop spaces, plus an award-winning café bar.

Adam Buss, chief executive at QUAD, said: “We are excited that we will be able to welcome customers back to QUAD at the earliest opportunity.

“There is an exciting programme planned for our re-opening, with new films, exhibitions and events. Full programme details will follow and we will be sharing these very soon.

“In the meantime, we would like to thank our funders, sponsors, supporters and stakeholders for their support, so we can continue the valuable work we do serving the community as a cultural organisation.”

Since the first national lockdown a year ago, QUAD has adapted its offer, moving its events and content online.

Adam said: “It is testament to our dedicated and adaptable staff team that we have been able to offer regular, innovative, fun and exciting content online during this past year.

“We hope this has helped to provide a creative outlet in these isolating and disengaging times.”

QUAD said it will be opening to the public with fully Covid-compliant measures in place.

The venue will require all visitors to observe current government regulations regarding social distancing and mask-wearing.
