Enjoy a guided exhibition tour of Chris Ofili: The Caged Bird’s Song every Tuesday and Thursday at 12pm with this ticket. 

This exhibition will allow you to experience the colour and magic of Chris Ofili’s mythical watercolour design and see its transformation into a large-scale tapestry that took Dovecot master weavers three years to complete!
