The Front Room – Hire Application…
Are you looking to hire a contemporary gallery space in the heart of Canterbury?
The Front Room is a dynamic and collaborative temporary exhibition space. The gallery provides the opportunity for community generated exhibitions to be displayed and celebrated and for emerging and established artists, art, craft and community groups (including schools and colleges) to showcase and sell their work.
“Exhibiting here is more than just being offered a space and being left to get on with things. Publicity via their website and assistance with labelling and information boards presents a cohesive package. Having presence in the High Street at the centre of our city signposts your work to a huge audience.”
Joyce Arnstrong, Canterbury Art StudioGuidelines and Criteria
UPDATE: The Front Room is fully booked for 2023/24. Applications for 2025 will be reviewed in Summer 2024.

The Front Room is a community exhibition space situated within The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge.
Exhibitors will have exclusive use of The Front Room and facilities required to professionally exhibit work.
Exhibitors will benefit from the museum and gallery’s high footfall and prominent high street location (averaging 10,000 per eight week exhibition) as well as excellent facilities.
There is no commission charge on artists’ sales from the gallery walls.
The Front Room is available to hire at £1350 + VAT per eight week block. This may increase in the new financial year.
The Beaney and The Front Room goes from strength to strength and is more popular than ever with not only the locals but further afield, especially with the open exhibitions which get a lot of publicity on social media which extends its profile. I have been honoured to have exhibited and sold work in The Front Room. It makes me very happy to be part of The Front Room’s artistic hub!
