18 March – Closure

At this very concerning time the health and wellbeing of visitors, staff and volunteers is of paramount importance to the North Devon Athenaeum.

For that reason the Athenaeum has decided to close  to the public from 5.00 pm on Wednesday 18 March.

We don’t yet know when we’ll reopen, but look forward to welcoming you back as soon as we can.

In the meantime, thank you very much for your support and understanding. Best wishes from us all and keep safe.
