Our building and events are currently closed to the public.


Following the latest Public Health England advice regarding the coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone all of our public events and to close the Ri building to visitors in the immediate future.

But whilst our building may be closed, our work continues online.
