Following recent Government announcements, we regret to announce that Cornerstone will close to the public with immediate effect
The safety of our customers, participants, volunteers, performers, artists, and staff members is paramount to us as we navigate these unprecedented times. This action is being taken purely as a precautionary measure and not as a result of any suspected or confirmed cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) reported at the venue.
We understand you may be disappointed if you have booked to see a show or have signed up to a workshop or class during this period. Where possible we are looking to post-pone and reschedule events. You will be entitled to a refund if an event has been cancelled or if you are unable to make the rescheduled date. We will be in touch with all bookers in due course. Please bear with us during this time as we have a large number of customers to contact.
We are closely following government advice and will keep you up-to-date as the situation changes and thank you for understanding and continued support at this challenging time.
Each season our Visual Arts Gallery offers a vast range of artwork created by local and national artists, ranging from painting to printmaking and installations to video – specialising in 2D. We want to give you the opportunity to experience new and exciting art from all across the country, whilst also offering visitors and members alike the chance to purchase the work – often with smaller prints available also.
The gallery is a space for you to come and lose your thoughts and imagination. Entry to this relaxing space is free, meaning you can take advantage of this at any time within our opening hours.
In our main Box Office area we also have beautiful crafts on offer, displayed in our craft boxes. These are all made by local artists – some of whom have also exhibited in our gallery space – with new exhibitors showing and giving you the chance to purchase their work regularly. Jewellery, pottery, fashion and other unique designs are on offer in an ever-changing display.
On approaching the building from the west side (opposite Wilkinsons) have a look at our Window Wall display space. These will often house artworks created by professionals and also community-made work produced throughout the year.
