Christmas Holidays

20 December 2018

It has been a busy year for The Auckland Project, with the official opening of Auckland Tower.

Next year looks sure to be even busier as we prepare for the opening of Auckland Castle.

Our team will be taking a break over the holidays, which means our offices are closed for Christmas from Friday, 21 December and will re-open at 9am on Monday, 7 January 2019.

You can still visit our venues over the festive period – the Mining Art Gallery and Auckland Tower will be open as usual until 4pm on Saturday, 22 December and will re-open at 10am on Friday, 27 December until 4pm on Sunday, 30 December. We’ll be closed for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

No.42 will be open until 5pm on Saturday, 22 December and will re-open in the New Year, at 10am on Wednesday, 2 January 2019.

If you would like to contact a member of staff during the Christmas break, you can call the team at Auckland Tower on 01388 600 576, on the days it is open.

We would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
