What you’ll do

Lights Up sessions are an opportunity to explore the ‘In Plain Sight’ exhibition with brighter and more even lighting conditions across the gallery.

Audio and BSL digital guides, a visual story, large-print and braille guides are available for use in the gallery, and staff are on hand for additional support.

During each session there will be a 30-minute audio-described tour of the exhibition, which you can join if you wish.

You’ll need to book a free ticket to attend a Lights Up session, but you can arrive at any time during the four-hour session.
