COVID-19 Update: 3 November 2020

Following the latest Government announcement and new national restrictions, it is with great sadness we will be temporarily closing our doors again at 10pm on Wednesday 4 November.

If you have booked a ticket or a course, we will be in touch directly to arrange a refund, credit or transfer. We hope to be open again on 3 December and will keep you updated about our plans in the coming weeks.

We’d like to thank you all for your wonderful support since we re-opened in September. During this short period, we have loved having you back in our building, to enjoy films, take part in creative learning, or meet up with friends. We are over the moon with your response to the launch of our new Bar & Restaurant, which has been fully booked most evenings (and is fully booked this Wednesday!). Here are a few of the kind comments we’ve received in recent weeks:

“Each visit has been wonderful”

“An uplifting experience in these new times”

“Outstanding, brilliant food and Kendal is lucky to have such an amazing chef at such a lovely venue”

“Couldn’t recommend the Brewery enough and we look forward to seeing what they do next!”

“Big thank you for starting the classes again; it makes such a difference”

During the lockdown, we will be delivering some digital activities, which we’ll be announcing soon. We will also take the opportunity to continue regenerating and refreshing our public spaces during lockdown. Thanks to grant funding received and ringfenced before the advent of Covid-19, we have a series of planned upgrades in the coming months.

We will modernise our Creative Learning spaces to create not only a COVID-safe environment but future proof of our facilities so we can offer visitors, artists, and learners the most advanced and safe spaces possible. Our new Digital Learning Hubs will offer digitally inspired learning, with high spec technology for exploring, producing and streaming creative projects.

Our Cinemas will benefit from new screens, dynamic sound systems, a new boutique screening and gaming room, and ergonomic seats. We are excited to have the opportunity to put these transformations into place to future proof the Brewery as a community hub and keep our doors open for many years to come.

Stay tuned to our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels, our website and sign up for our newsletters to receive all the latest updates about our refurbishments and reopening plans.

Thank you again for all your support, and to everyone who has donated to us during this time. You can continue to support us with a donation or by purchasing a gift voucher online. Every donation means the world to us.

Thank you for your continued support, stay safe, and see you again soon!

Best wishes from the Brewery team
