Hire Us

Castlefield Gallery is available for hire for breakfast meetings, seminars and evening drinks receptions. 

As a public art gallery, Castlefield Gallery holds up to eight art exhibitions a year that are researched and curated by the gallery’s Curator. Our exhibitions include  work by regional, national and international contemporary visual artists and provide a unique backdrop to your events and a stimulating talking point for your guests.

The gallery space is arranged over 2 floors. The larger of the two is the lower gallery space, with the upper space lending itself perfectly to more intimate events.  Features of the recently renovated gallery include a balcony overlooking the double height space and huge windows along two sides of the gallery.  The space can accommodate up to 100 people for a standing function/drinks reception, up to 45 people theatre style and between 3-14 delegates for breakfast meetings. (Exact guest capacity is dependent on the concurrent exhibition)

All public spaces in the gallery are fully accessible.
