Our exhibitions programme is very important to Forest Arts. Not only do the artworks create a stimulating ever changing backdrop, they also add to the ambience of the centre. We hope you enjoy seeing all the different media and artists. You can also buy the art on display - we offer an attractive Arts Council England approved 0% credit loan scheme - making art more affordable. Please ask us about any of the artists or their work - we’re happy to help.
Free entry to all exhibitions and artist receptions.Please note that the Centre will be closed during the last two weeks in August and over the Christmas break which will affect access to exhibitions.
Normal opening hours are from 10am-5pm Monday-Saturday. The centre is not open on Sundays.
