BALTIC is open and ready to welcome you back safely. We've put changes in place so that you can enjoy a safe visit in a relaxed atmosphere.
To begin, only our Ground Floor gallery will be open where you can visit the Abel Rodríguez exhibition, as well as BALTIC Shop and BALTIC Kitchen.
We are asking all visitors to book free tickets in advance for an allocated time slot. This will help us manage the number of people visiting, so the galleries aren’t crowded and so that you can experience BALTIC and the exhibition safely.
We are asking asking all visitors to wear a face covering when visiting BALTIC. Face coverings are mandatory for all visitors except those with health and breathing issues, and children under the age of 11, in line with government guidelines.
You can read about the changes we’ve made below, as well as some guidance we’d like you to follow when visiting.
Please remember, stay at home if you’re feeling unwell, or have been in contact with someone who has coronavirus, and follow NHS coronavirus guidelines.
In order to help reduce the risk of a local outbreak of coronavirus we are asking for contact details of all visitors. When you book in advance, we will ask for contact details of the person making the booking. If you arrive without an advance booking, a member of staff will ask for your contact details. In line with guidance issued by the government, we will keep your details for 21 days. We will only share them with NHS Test and Trace if asked, in the event of a fellow visitor testing positive for coronavirus.
BEFORE YOU VISIT
We’re asking all visitors to book a free timed ticket online in advance of their visit. This will help us manage the number of people visiting at any one time, and ensure everyone can keep a safe distance.
You will be able to book up to a maximum of 6 tickets, for yourself and those in your household or bubble.
Tickets are available Monday-Sunday, 10.30-18.00, with last entry at 17.00.
For anyone unable to book online we recommend calling 07711 392448 and we will organise your tickets.
A limited number of tickets will be available on the day for those visitors who have not booked in advance. For any visitors who arrive at BALTIC without a ticket you are likely to have to queue until numbers are safe for you to enter, but we recommend everyone books online in advance to avoid disappointment.
