The Stephen Joseph Theatre has a gallery, for around 30 exhibits, around the corridor outside The Round auditorium. Our aim is to support the work of local artists and photographers by offering them the opportunity of exhibiting; we take a commission of 22% plus VAT on any sales.
We discuss our exhibition programme at the beginning of each year and invite up to five artists per year to exhibit.
If you are interested, please contact Jaye Lewis and include examples of your work.
The Gallery is open Monday - Saturday from 10am - 6pm except during Round performances (including matinees).
Admission is free.

Two things in life make my heart sing – swimming and painting.
It is the sense of both vulnerability and freedom in the open water that I try to portray.
Monday 28 October 2019 – Saturday 12 January 2020
As a school boy in the 1960s I wanted to be a photographer. I didn’t particularly see it as a way of making money, I just wanted to create pictures of what interested me at the time. My father had other ideas about a possible future career and carefully steered me towards studying the science subjects, university and a career in business saying that there would be time for photography when I retired! Following retirement in 2013, the passion was still there and I gradually began to revive my interest. In 2017 I successfully completed a postgraduate diploma in photography at the British Academy of Photography and now accept the occasional assignment and continue to build my portfolio. I like to observe as well as see and create a bit of language in each shot that I take. I hope you enjoy my exhibition.
