As well as wandering freely through the Gallery's impressive permanent Collections, visitors will also be offered the chance to take part in a series of family-friendly events led by local artists to raise funds for the Community programme. Activities will include sketching, badge-making, face painting, and card making.

Other events include a series of craft stalls in Room 11 offering the opportunity for visitors to buy unique handmade products from jewellery to greetings cards and free De'Longhi coffee tasting provided by the Gallery's headline sponsor.

Visitors will also be able to see the blockbuster Edward Burra exhibition in its final weeks for just £3.75 (half usual price £7.50).

Previous Open Days this year have attracted over 1000 visitors each and raised £2000 worth of funds.
