Hiring The Courtyard Gallery

The Courtyard Gallery and Art Space is an exhibition space as well as an area for creative activities situated at the centre of The Core in Solihull. During the opening hours of exhibition there will be regular classes and activities taking place in the Courtyard which will make it a vibrant space throughout the week with diverse audience and user base. 

If you are interested in holding an event or activity as part of your exhibition, for example an artist talk, demonstration or workshop we would look to accommodate such an activity as part of the programme. Please discuss any plans either at time of booking or at least a month prior to your exhibition opening.
