‘Three Caryatids’: ‘The Unbinding: A Restorative Act in Two Halves' - POSTPONED
In light of the changing global situation around COVID-19, and our desire to avoid contributing to the spread of the virus, the Bulldog Trust has taken the very difficult decision to close Two Temple Place and our current exhibition, Unbound, to the public. Our responsibility to visitors, volunteers and staff means that we must their health and wellbeing at the forefront of our operations.
We regret that this means we have to inform you that we have to cancel our event Subversive Stitching. We are very hopeful that we will be able to reorganise the event and host it later this year. If you would be interested in being kept in touch about this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org including the name of the event.
We sincerely apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience caused.
