The art of fine events. Originally built to house the art collection of Joseph Shipley, the Shipley Art Gallery is an architectural jewel in the heart of Gateshead. The gallery is an excellent example of Edwardian architecture, which would add grandeur, and a sense of occasion to a range of corporate and private events
Ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and evening receptions. Our elegant main gallery space is licensed for wedding parties of up to 120 guests and can also accommodate up to 120 guests for a drinks reception. The smaller side galleries are also licensed for more intimate groups of up to 15 guests and can be used as an alternative space for drinks receptions. The adjoining exhibition space showcases over 300 objects from the Shipley’s craft and design collection and makes a wonderful setting for drinks and canapés.
A spacious, alternative location for a variety of celebrations, functions, dinners and concerts. The elegant main gallery houses a variety of permanent and temporary exhibitions and, along with the adjoining Designs for Life and beautiful side galleries, provides a spacious, alternative location for a variety of PR events, functions, dinners and concerts. The main gallery and side galleries can be booked exclusively for a range of events.
