Mervyn Bishop Exhibition Postponed

As a precautionary measure during the Covid-19 pandemic we have made the decision to close our building to the public during this period.

The NFSA is taking this decision to help safeguard the health and safety of visitors and staff, as well as the broader community.

That means that the Mervyn Bishop exhibition at the NFSA, which had previously been announced as opening on 24 April, has been delayed until 2021.

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation daily and publish relevant updates about our activities on our website and social media.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and thank you for your patience and understanding whilst we adapt to the ongoing situation.

Please let us know if you have any feedback or questions by emailing enquiries [at]
