Bridlington Old Town Gallery gets set to spark new life into the Bridlington Old Town High Street
As autumn starts to set in a new team are setting to to make the Bridlington Old Town Gallery a new place to be in the Old Town High Street.
The team have been assisted by a High Street grant from the East Riding of Yorkshire Council. The plan is to make the Bridlington Old Town Gallery into a vibrant and exciting constantly changing Art Gallery and Information Point.
The team are headed up by The Revd Matthew Pollard (Bridlington Priory Church) and by Mr Timothy Norman (The Royal Bridlington). They are Directors of the Company, Bridlington Old Town Enterprise Ltd. This Company is now the Lessee of the Bridlington Old Town Gallery from the Lords Feoffes. There is also a small but dedicated group of hard working volunteers. These include Martyn Coltman, Liz Philpot, Pam Quigley and Liz Hillman. This team are dedicated to making the Social Enterprise a massive success.
The Bridlington Old Town Gallery is planning a refurbishment early in 2016. This will see the launch of a new rolling exhibition with a visiting artist. There will also be new lighting, decorations and flooring. This will make the Bridlington Old Town Gallery and Information Point the place to visit.
There will also be plenty of Tourist Information in the Gallery. This will fulfill a great service to the Bridlington Old Town Community.
William Kent, a famous Georgian architect and landscape gardener was born in the very same building. The Bridlington Old Town Gallery has recently, as part of the Heritage Day celebrations, put on an exhibition of his life and times.
Are you a budding artist? Would like to show your work? We are always looking for new blood to make the Gallery fresh and vibrant. The wall space rentals are low as we operate as a non-profit organisation social enterprise.
We look forward to hearing from you soon. And seeing you in the Bridlington Old Town Gallery and Information Point.
