The hiring period runs from Thursday to Thursday. Please collect Gallery keys from the Studio Office at 3pm on the first Thursday and return them by 1pm on the final Thursday.

Private Views:
We do not have an entertainment license so alcohol must not be sold during the private view or at any time of the exhibition. However a ‘donations’ bar for drinks is acceptable.

Hirers are to provide their own exhibition invigilation.
The Gallery is to be locked and secure when left unattended.


Publicity of the exhibition is the responsibility of the hirer. But the Gallery Co- ordinator will post information about your event on the gallery website/local & regional listings/social media and in a monthly newsletter.

Hirers are to provide installation and hanging equipment.


Equipment provided by Centrespace Gallery and Studios is used at the hirers own risk.

Respect for the neighbours, property, the lane and environment is necessary at all times.

Hirers are required to leave Centrespace Gallery as they found it, specifically ready for the next exhibitors.

Hirers are responsible for any theft or damage that takes place during their exhibition. Costs incurred will be deductible from the hirers deposit.

The safety of all persons involved in and entering Centrespace Gallery during the period of exhibition is the responsibility of the hirer.

Centrespace Gallery is not responsible for any loss or injury to any hirers, invigilators or members of the public.

Centrespace Gallery reserves the right to cancel/close exhibitions without notice if we feel that the public are at risk of any physical or mental harm.

Noise is to be kept to a reasonable level, especially the back of the gallery, due to the close proximity of Bristol Law Courts.

Opening Hours

The Gallery is to be open during the agreed hours of the Contract of Hire between Centrespace Gallery and the exhibitor(s).

If hirers are unable to open the gallery for any reason or have to close early, please inform a member of Centrespace Studios by the end of the previous day or very early in the morning so visitors can be notified and the reputation of the gallery can be up-held.

Hirers are responsible for the insurance of their artwork and property whilst on the premises.
