Learn about The Met’s vibrant history and origins.
As we all do our bit to help keep our communities safe and healthy, The Met has to close its doors (temporarily) to the public. This goes against everything we aim to be; inclusive, welcoming and packed with music, creativity and happy people. Which means we’re looking ahead to when we can re-open, and what we can do in the meantime to keep reaching people.
We are grateful to our corporate sponsors for their support. Their contribution to The Met is absolutely vital. They help us make our work accessible, and make a difference to the lives of local people.
