The Crypt Gallery

The Gallery

Situated in Norway Square, amongst the narrow streets of former fishermen’s cottages in Virgin Street, Teetotal Street, or Salubrious Place, the Crypt Gallery has been used by the Society for many years to hold additional shows.

During the 1940’s, this space became home to the splinter group of modernist and avante garde artists including Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson, Peter Lanyon and Sven Berlin – also known as the Crypt Group. 

It currently houses an ever-changing programme of solo and group exhibitions from national and international artists. 

If you are interested in renting the Crypt Gallery for 2025 then please register your details with the gallery using the Contact Us page. 

The Crypt Gallery is open for rental on a weekly basis. Members of the Society have priority booking and then the remaining weeks are offered to members of the public.
