Ahead of our reopening in August, and in line with Government advice the following plans aim to provide a manageable and safe environment for our volunteers and visitors at Cheeseburn.

To ensure you have a safe, welcoming and engaging experience with sculpture and a number of measures will be in place so that a limited number of visitors can enjoy Cheeseburn Sculpture in August 2020

We have redesigned our operations to encourage social distancing in the following ways:

  • Entry will only be allowed by pre-booked online tickets – this will control visitor numbers and the flow of when people arrive and leave with 2 timed sessions 11am to 1pm and 2pm to 4pm
  • We will be limiting tickets to 150 for each session which should reduce visitor numbers by up to 50%
  • There will be a one-way walking route around the grounds and visitors will receive a single-use map which also contains social distancing advice
  • Hand sanitisers will be available onsite for visitors to use
  • We will not open any of our indoor spaces and instead will focus on ‘sculpture in the gardens’
  • We will not open the Stables Gallery or the café as the spaces are too small to enable social distancing
  • Volunteers will receive a full briefing on new operational measures, our volunteers will be provided with masks and gloves
  • Artists and performers will be encouraged to work in a socially distanced way – for instance, a dance performance in a fenced-off area of the tennis court
  • Artists installing work before the open weekends will be advised to work in a safe and socially distanced way.
