Have your say on the future of Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery

Tullie House garden, Carlisle

Project Tullie is Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery’s ambitious plan to reimagine and reinvent the museum for future generations.

As part of this, the museum team would like to find out what people want in the museum in the future. The museum is inviting participants to join one of two discussion groups – for regular visitors and for those who haven’t visited the museum in the last five years or before.

The project team want to find out what people think about the museum, what it does and the programmes it currently offers. Tullie House will use this information to help inform the development of a museum masterplan for the next ten years.

This is a unique opportunity for residents in Carlisle and the surrounding area to shape the future of their local museum.
The discussion group sessions will both take place in Carlisle, on Wednesday 23 January 2019, with the first session held at Tullie House from 4.15-6pm, and the second session at The Crown & Mitre Hotel, in Carlisle city centre from 6.30-8pm.

“This is a unique opportunity for the public to tell us what they want Tullie House to be in the future, what we currently get right, and what we can do more effectively and more of in the future.” Amy Walker, Head of Programme & Development and Project Tullie Manager

Participants will be offered £30 as a thank you for their time. Light refreshments will also be provided.

To register an interest in taking part in these focus groups, please visit by 7 January 2019 to fill in a short survey.
