Song gifted to The Bowes Museum

Musician reworks version of #Untitled10 2018 exhibition piece to be permanently installed in Music Room.

A new version of the sound installation, created as part of the #Untitled10 2018, exhibition has been gifted to The Bowes Museum.

Musician Kit Haigh was supported using public funding by Arts Council England to rework "Song", the piece of music he made for the Bowes Centre.

The title comes from a slip of manuscript found inside the Haxby square piano, which had been there since it was built in 1794, it is simply called "Song".

Visitors to the Museum can currently enjoy the original version in the Music Room and will be able to hear the new composition from 4 July.

Frances Priest: Influences of the East

22 June - 15 September, 2019

Frances Priest: Influences of the East

The Bowes Museum is thrilled to be showcasing the most recent work by the Edinburgh based ceramicist, Frances Priest.

The artist potter is inspired by different cultures, places and periods in history and she creates intricate and colourful objects that celebrate her fascination for ornament and pattern.

Her work will be interspersed around the Museum's collection, complementing and contrasting with items chosen by our curator of ceramics, Howard Coutts.

Frances Priest: Influences of the East will be open from 22 June until 15 September.



Could you become a guiding light at The Bowes Museum?

More volunteer guides are needed as the number of tours is expected to increase.

Volunteer guides take more than 4,000 people on guided tours around the Museum collections each year and this year the number of tours is expected to increase.

So now, a call's going out asking for more people to volunteer to become a guide.

If you're outgoing, friendly and enjoy telling a story then it could be just the thing for you!

The Bowes Museum is closed!


Due to the government announcement on Thursday 17 December, that County Durham is to remain in COVID tier 3 restrictions, The Bowes Museum unfortunately will remain closed to all visitors.

As we have already been shut for a number of weeks and there is much uncertainty around possible further restrictions, we have decided to use this period to undertake some work in Café Bowes, alongside performing some much-needed structural repairs to the building, notably to the windows. January and February are usually quieter times for the Museum, often due to severe weather, so we believe that this is the best time to carry out such works with the least amount of disruption to our visitors.

We have therefore decided to remain closed for a period of four weeks following any near-future tier 2 announcement from the government, as this will allow us time to deep clean the Museum prior to reopening our doors once again. We will, of course, keep you updated as the guidelines change.

Your ongoing support during these unprecedented times is hugely appreciated and we very much look forward to welcoming you back into the building as early as possible in 2021.

Do please remember, however, that the Museum’s park and grounds remain open to visitors from 10.00 – 4.00 daily, and that we are currently hosting a woodland fairy trail, clues can be found here.

We hope to be able to offer a few COVID-safe outdoor events over the coming months, about which we shall make further announcements as soon as possible.
