We are now taking bookings for 2019, so if you have something special to showcase, we would love to hear from you.

For a heavily reduced hire fee plus commission on sales, we offer week-long slots during the peak visitor periods and welcome a diversity of work from individual artists or groups, both new and old. The Great Oak Hall is a light and airy space in which to display your pieces.
