5 Of The Best Exhibitions To Go To This December

We’re lucky to have so much brilliant art in the UK, but sometimes it can be hard to keep up with what exhibitions are on and when exhibitions close. So, to help you out a bit, we’ve put together some of our favourites to go to this December!

Jonathan Griffith Retrospective

A beautiful exhibition at Unity Theatre in Liverpool by Jonathan Griffith, an 81 year old self-taught artist. He developed his painting skills in his spare time, over many years, and this retrospective charts his work over time as his style has evolved and he has gradually lost movement.

Audio description is available at the Unity Theatre.

1 Nov – 8 Dec, Unity Theatre, Liverpool, L1 9BG

Spellbound

SPELLBOUND at the Ashmolean Museum

With some brilliant reviews to back it up (The Times called it “mesmerising” while The Telegraph went with “irresistibly creepy”), SPELLBOUND dives deep into the history of magic over eight centuries in an immersive and thought-provoking exhibition.

The exhibition asks us to examine our own beliefs and rituals, and aims to show how, even in this skeptical age, we still use magical thinking and why we might need a bit of magic in our lives.

On now until 6 Jan, Ashmolean Museum, OX1 2PH
