Enjoy "Grayson Perry: The Most Popular Art Exhibition Ever!" at a relaxed early opening specially designed to be accessible for neurodiverse audiences, audiences with autism or additional needs who may find it easier to enjoy the exhibition in a calmer environment.

From 27 September until 24 December, Arnolfini will present works by Grayson Perry, one of the world’s most charismatic artists and astute commentators on contemporary society.

On the last Sunday of the months we are opening the galleries an hour early for a relaxed early opening designed to be accessible for neurodiverse audiences. Audiences are welcome to come for the early opening and stay on into the general opening hours.
