Building work is underway to transform St Albans’ Town Hall into a brand new museum and art gallery right in the city centre - it’s due to open in spring 2018.

We are setting up a Museum Access Advisory Group to ensure exhibitions and activities will be open to all members of the community, including those with specific needs.

The Group will use its knowledge of a range of disabilities to help inform key areas such as the presentation of the collections and events.

These disabilities could include mobility, hearing, sight and sensory impairments, learning difficulties and mental health issues and anyone else who identifies as having a disability.

People with relevant knowledge or experience of any of these are invited to attend a public meeting to find out more about joining the group. 

Anyone interested should have constructive opinions about access issues and enjoy exploring creative solutions. They should also have a desire to support and improve the experience of visitors with specific accessibility needs.

The open meeting will be held at the Council offices at the Civic Centre, St Peter’s Street on Wednesday 15th February from 6.30pm – 8pm. Anyone interested in attending should email museum@stalbans.gov.uk, with the details above.
If you’re unable to attend but interested, please do still get in touch.

There are disabled parking spaces available in the Civic Centre car park behind the Council offices. The meeting will be held in the Council Chamber, which is accessible via lift to the first floor. Carers and support assistants are welcome to attend. The room has a hearing loop. Large print information will be available and a BSL interpreter can be provided on request.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with us: museum@stalbans.gov.uk / 01727 819 581.
