After a successful 2019, during which we received over 3,500 visitors to the newly refurbished Chapter House, held a number of events and carried out a programme of group and school visits, we had planned to open again in 2020.
We regret, however, that like so many museums and venues the Chapter House has to remain closed for the present owing to the coronavirus outbreak.
At present we do not anticipate re-opening in 2020, but the closure will give us the opportunity to continue with improvement works to the interior, which will include plumbing and electrical services and completing the paving of the internal space. We have been fortunate to obtain a grant for this work from the London Borough of Merton Community Infrastructure Levy, with the object of creating within the museum a local venue and performance space for drama, educational activity and community events.
We aim to re-open the Chapter House with this work completed in April 2022.
