DC1 Gallery & Cafe Gallery Space

Hiring the DC1 Gallery & Cafe Gallery Space

Our new purpose-built gallery is an exciting space for exhibitions and a range of events including workshops, talks, film, performance and social functions.

Meanwhile our cafe gallery upstairs also offers another compelling space for visual arts exhibitions and for events – on its own or coupled with the main gallery downstairs.

Please see rates for hiring space below – standalone hire or combined hire (main gallery and cafe gallery).

For enquiries and bookings, please contact Lucinda Murphy, Facilities Coordinator on facilities@devonshirecollective.co.uk.
