What is the capacity of the gallery?

The gallery can facilitate up to 200 people standing and 40 seated. However as visitors usually come and go during the course of an evening you may invite more than this number of people to your event.

When hiring the gallery for an exhibition can we have evening/ weekend events?

Saturday opening is possible in most cases, although we are unable to facilitate Sunday events. Please contact us to discuss your needs.

What deposit do I have to pay? Is it refundable?

To secure your booking date(s) a 25% deposit of the final amount is required. This is refundable if the booking is cancelled up to two calendar months before your hire.

For exhibitions where work will be hung on walls, an additional £150 deposit will be taken, fully refundable if the gallery is returned in reasonable condition.

Do we have to clean up/ re-paint etc the space after our hire?

Four Corners will make good and paint the gallery after your exhibition ends. However we generally expect the spaces to be returned to us in a clean and tidy fashion, with screws removed from walls. Any damage considered excessive will be deducted from your deposit. We will detail specific requirements after discussion with you in your hire agreement.

Do you provide invigilation/staff to help?

The reception at Four Corners is manned during our opening times so visitors to your exhibition/event will be able to gain access. If you require anything above this then we recommend that you provide your own invigilators/support staff. Please contact us if you would like us to arrange this for you.

Do you provide technical support?

AV support can be arranged at an additional cost by prior arrangement.

When hiring the gallery for an exhibition is there a private view included in the price?

I want to change the look of the space, is this possible?

We are open to all suggestions but any changes to the space must be agreed and discussed with Four Corners in advance.

Do you provide a bar and other refreshments?

Four Corners is unlicensed but you can give your guests refreshments and our reception desk doubles very nicely as a bar. Please contact us to discuss your needs and we can suggest some local suppliers.

When do I have to pay the final balance?

The outstanding balance is required two calendar months in advance of the booking. The full balance is required at the time of booking for hires less than two calendar months away.

When does my exhibition week hire run from and until?

The weekly hire runs from 10am Tuesday until 1pm Monday. This allows for the repair of the gallery before the next exhibition.
