About Us

The Courtyard Gallery

The gallery is run as a Community Interest Company (CIC) and is a vibrant community arts space, putting you in touch with local artists and local arts resources. The gallery exhibits the work of twenty local artists who take turns in stewarding the gallery, and offer both a friendly welcome as well as information about the artists and their processes. 

You will find a wide selection of affordable local creative work here, from artist-made cards and gifts to original contemporary art for your home and garden.

Are you an artist looking for somewhere to work away from home? Or perhaps you are looking for a prime location from which to run your own workshops?

The Courtyard Gallery is offering studio spaces in the unit adjacent to the gallery at a daily rate of £10 or a weekly rate of £60.  The space for running your own creative workshops costs just £12 per hour.
