Britannia Panopticon reopens on 2 August 2020

The Friends of the Britannia Panopticon Music Hall have announced they will be reopening the Britannia Panopticon for visits on Sundays from Sunday 2 August with social distancing requirements in place. Timed entry applies at 12 noon, 13.00, 14.00 and 15.00.

Due to the Covid-19 guidance for visitor attractions, they have made changes to access to the music hall and exhibition.

There is now an admission charge of £3 per visit. Free admission for children under 14 years old. If visitors purchase a Friends special moustache mask the charge is £5 per visit.

All visits must be booked and paid for in advance. Bookings made by emailing

Bookings should be made by 16.00 hours on the Friday before a visit. Places will be limited and they advise booking early to avoid disappointment.

In order to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 and to protect volunteers and other visitors a face covering must be worn to gain admittance.
