Plan Your Visit // Keeping you and our team safe

We are now open with Fani Parali’s ANOYX and DREPAN & THE MINDERS OF THE WARM. Keeping everyone safe during this time is our top priority; therefore we have the following precautions in place for the benefit of our visitors and staff:

A magazine cutting with the title 'The British Empire' in blue print, in the left-hand corner and a 1823 painted scene of men in Barbados pushing barrels of sugar and rum on the shore, ready to be shipped to England. In the left-hand corner, a paragraph in small print reads: 'Barrels of sugar and rum, brought in carts from the remote plantations to the nearest beach, are rolled in dinghies and rowed out to lighters moored in the shallow water. These small boats took their cargoes round the coast to the island's two ports, where deep-draught merchantmen awaited them. There, the barrels were stowed for the last leg of their journey to England, where the agents of the plantation-owners sold the contents'.
