House of Voltaire's online store remains open!

The safety of our staff, couriers and supporters remain our primary concern. As a result, delivery and fulfilment times may take longer than normal.

We are currently able to offer delivery via courier to most national and international locations. We will shortly resume delivery via Royal Mail, however there might be a slight delay in fulfilling these orders. We are currently not able to offer collection in person. You can still select this option and we will be in touch when these services resume in the near future. If you have any questions or need something by a particular date, please contact us by email.

All sales directly support Studio Voltaire's artistic and public programmes.
