Winter at The Burton

The Building is now CLOSED until Monday 2nd February. (including Bideford Toruist Information, Cafe du Parc and the Gallery and Museum)
From Saturday 17th January 2015 until Sunday 1st February The Burton will be closed. Re-opening at 10.00 a.m on Monday 2nd February 2015.
Over Christmas and New Year we normally close to the public for 2 weeks to do some spring cleaning, stock taking and generally get together as a staff team to think and plan our future. But as you know this year we opened between Christmas and New Year which hasn't given us any time to get some of our jobs done plus we're having our air handling system refurbished. So we will be closed from Saturday 17th January until Sunday 1st February, opening with an exhibition from the Ackland and Edwards collection, 'Between the Lines', at 10am on Monday 2nd February.
