Warm Welcome Winter Appeal
We’ve launched a winter appeal to raise money to extend our Warm Space opening hours and provide lots of mindful activities in the new year. Find out more in our bio. We’re also getting match funding from the Co-op Warm Spaces Funding Boost who will match your donations. Please give whatever you can to help us keep people warm happy and healthy this winter
People who visit OD regularly describe us as warm, welcoming and friendly. Everyone who visits is greeted by one of our staff team when they first come into the gallery – that’s always the way.
Now though, as the temperatures drop and the cost of heating rises, we want to extend that warm welcome to those that are interested in who we are and what we do. We’re an independent charity. This is your space and you are welcome here. You don’t need to have a reason to come to Oriel Davies to spend time and keep warm – just come in, make yourself comfortable and let staff know if you need any help (staff may be wearing a sweatshirt with DAVIES written on the back). We may not be able to meet all your needs but here’s what we can offer:
- We have free exhibitions to see.
- We have a cafe with underfloor heating. All proceeds go towards our programme. You’re welcome to sit in here as long as you like.
- We have a programme of events, many of them free, that you can sign up for and join in.
- We have information on more resourced ‘warm banks’ nearby, details of other supportive organisations in the area, and a community noticeboard for information about what’s on elsewhere.
- We have an accessible, gender neutral toilet.
- We provide warm fleece blankets made from 100% recycled material.
- You are welcome to bring your own portable devices to charge them and use our Wi-Fi for free.
We look forward to seeing you!
Our opening hours are currently:
Tuesday - Saturday: 11am to 4pm
Please note the cafe is open Wednesday - Saturday: 11-3
Oriel Davies will close for Christmas and New Year on Saturday 24th December, and will reopen on Tuesday, 3rd January 2023.
