Venue Hire

Allsop Gallery

The light and airy space comprises the entire upper floor of an old Georgian schoolhouse. It measures 15m x 6.5m with two 2.5m high hanging boards running the length of the galley.

Seating capacity of 70 for talks and performances.

Café

The Café is situated to the rear of the building, a beautifully proportioned room with Georgian windows, leading on to a walled garden.   The space shows exhibitions from local and regional artists.

Seating capacity of 40.

We have a curated programme for the galleries so the spaces are not usually for hire for exhibitions.  Artists are welcome to submit proposals.  You can request our guidelines from the email below.

The Allsop Gallery is programmed approx. 18 months in advance and the foyer & cafe spaces 6 months in advance.

For gallery enquiries please contact Polly Gifford: polly@bridport-arts.com
