With four exhibition spaces plus a fabulous sculpture garden, the gallery stocks work from more than 300 local, national and international artists and makers. The main exhibition space plays host to a breathless turnover of shows - approximately ten a year.Cupola is also committed to providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere and to that end provides free chocolate cake every Saturday and free hot drinks to all our visitors any day. Children are always welcome. Cupola boasts an excellent award winning sculpture garden and the upstairs gallery is home to the Long gallery and the Craft gallery. Cupola regularly showcases painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, glass, textiles and jewellery. In addition, Cupola Framing is our well established framing department situated adjacent to the gallery offering high quality bespoke framing as well as selling local artists prints and cards. « less

We are not wealthy but we do like art. Cupola is a great place to visit, to view a frequently changing selection of work . . . and occasionally to buy! It's a wonderfully understated gallery without any hint of pretension. There is usually a wide range of items, styles and prices.

Always something new and different to tempt you, intrigue, or please the eye. This is a gem of a gallery in which the busy roads surrounding it melt away into tranquillity and contemplation.

I had the pleasure of living near to Cupola for many years and visited often, even though I now must travel much further to get my fix, it is worth it every time. Cupola has a charm unlike any other gallery, the quality and diversity of the work on display and the unassuming spaces create a treasure trove that begs... More

It's been a while since I visited this gallery, entirely due to work commitments, and I am planning another trip soon. Great people, great space. No pretence and a lovely, relaxed feel, with a great mix of artwork on display.
