What's On

Today Friday 21 September 2018Highlights

We have recently opened the Front Room, a new public space that houses our collection of art books and magazines. Visitors are invited to make use of the space in a number of ways and can also use it to enjoy drinks from Arnolfini Cafe Bar.

Over the coming months the Front Room will host talks and special events, including Arnolfini Book Club, launched in March.

Arnolfini Bookshop is also open with an expanded shop to include more titles than ever.

Please sign up to our mailing list to be kept up to date.
