‘Kaleidoscope’ at the Walker

There’s so much happening at the Walker this month, we thought we’d put it all in one place for you – and a suggest a few highlights that you won’t want to miss! We always recommend checking our website before making a special trip to the Gallery, just in case of any cancellations.

Free tours

Did you know that we hold free lunchtime talks at 1pm on Tuesdays? We’ll have a different talk each week this month. On 8 May, we’ll hear from students at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) School of Art and Design. On 15 May, project curator Bethan Lewis will talk visitors through our latest exhibition, Kaleidoscope: Colour and Sequence in 1960s British Art.

We also hold introductory tours to the Gallery every Wednesday at 3pm. Read more…
