Whitworth Art Gallery reopens in Manchester

The Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester reopened last weekend (14 February) following a £15m redevelopment project which has doubled the size of the property.

Founded in 1889 as the first English gallery in a park and part of the University of Manchester, the gallery has a range of spaces for hire for events, including the Jacobean-style Grand Hall which now features a double height ceiling.

The new building includes an art garden, sculpture terrace and orchard garden, alongside a new landscape gallery.
