Simon Jones, Cultural Services Manager at the Borough Council explained:

We have to continue to follow government guidance and support all social distancing procedures. We are all incredibly disappointed as a lot of hard work goes into the planning of these events, however, we will continue to monitor and review government advice before making a decision about events that are due to take place later in the summer and advise people in due course.

The Atkins Gallery at the Atkins Building continues to be closed until further notice and there will be no conferences taking place for the foreseeable future.
