Henry Moore Studios & Gardens has extended its opening into November and December in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Director Godfrey Worsdale said: "We understand the enormous benefits of being outdoors, access to green space, nature and inspiring artworks to our health, which has never been so important. This is why we have decided to extend our opening season for the final weekends of the year."

The attraction usually shuts for the winter in October, but reopened on Saturday (November 14) and will welcome visitors each Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 4pm (last entry 3pm) until December 20.

Government advice and guidance will be adhered to at all times, which means that Moore's home, studios and shop will not be open to the public. However, the foundation's website will continue to offer gifts, homewares, books and clothing.

Entrance costs £6 for adults, £4.50 for concessions, £3 for children aged 5 to 18 and £15 for a family. For more details see https://www.henry-moore.org/.
