Since its opening it has fast become a hotbed of art displays for the borough. Ever changing, the Gallery is programmed 6-9 months in advance of each booking.

The Council's Arts and Cultural Development team manage and promote the gallery's programme throughout the year ensuring there is a diverse range of art work to view from professional and amateur artists, to community groups and schools.
