Conferences and events in Newcastle
Shipley Art Gallery is an architectural jewel in the heart of Gateshead, originally built to house the art collection of Joseph Shipley.
Over the last 25 years the venue has become established as a national centre for contemporary craft and has built up one of the best collections outside London, including ceramics, wood, metal, glass, textiles and furniture.
The Shipley also boasts a spectacular collection of fine art, including William Irving's painting The Blaydon Races. It is an excellent example of Edwardian architecture which adds grandeur and a sense of occasion to evening receptions. The elegant main gallery and the new Designs for Life gallery provide a spacious, alternative location for a variety of PR events, functions and concerts.
