John Hansard Gallery offers elegant and spacious gallery spaces, providing an exceptional setting for a variety of events. The exhibitions not only provide a wonderful and truly original backdrop, they also offer a stimulating talking point for guests, making an event at John Hansard Gallery a unique and rewarding experience.
The gallery has a large capacity, and is just as adept at structuring large, professional conferences as it is at organising private parties or family gatherings. Gallery hire can be tailored to clients' requirements. For occasions which require an increased level of privacy, private dining rooms and the Gallery's smaller viewing spaces are perfectly suited to an intimate and memorable occasion. These are available for gallery hire both during the daytime and evening. The gallery can accommodate a range of corporate hospitality events including receptions, breakfast meetings, seminars, presentations and product launches.
During gallery opening hours (11-5pm Tuesday to Friday & 11-4pm Saturday) the gallery must remain open to the public and therefore we cannot offer exclusive use of the space during these times.
It is strongly advised that potential hirers arrange to visit the gallery during the applicable show to establish its suitability for their requirements. The interior space changes with each installation and consequently the John Hansard Gallery cannot guarantee that the overall space will be suitable for your event. Restrictions may be applied dependent on the nature of the current exhibition.
