Bishop Street Methodist Church

Art at the Chapel Explorations into Art and Spirituality

Exhibit at Bishop Street

Calling All Artists and Photographers


Are you…

1: A local artist or photographer.

2: An artist whose work links to faith or spirituality.

3: A charity interested in putting on an exhibition which raises awareness about important social  issues.


Our Leicester city center exhibition space

We have two areas for exhibition. The wall space of the Chapel Cafe and the Exhibition Boards in the East Undergallery.  Example photos on this page include exhibitions by Ric Stott and Kate Moore. The city center location is convenient for people to pop in. The busy cafe means your work will be viewed by a wide audience. The church is a beautiful space complete with gallery spotlights and the exhibition boards can be arranged to show off your work to its very best.

How much will it cost me?

The price is based on a daily rate which varies depending on whether you have a solo or group exhibition.  Get in touch for a quote for your own exhibition. As a rough guide most solo exhibitions cost around £35 for one week or £70 for two weeks.

When can I exhibit?

We are currently taking bookings for this year and next so get in touch as soon as possible to reserve the dates you want.

Can I sell my work?

Yes! You will be asked for a price list  when you book your exhibition. Please note we take 25% commission from sales which goes towards holding art based events for the community.

Can I have a Private View?

Yes of course! Please Note: There is a £25 charge if you want to hold your event outside of the Church’s normal opening hours and only non-alcoholic drinks may be served as we are a Methodist Church  (Why not serve non-alcoholic cocktails or arrange gather in a local bar to discuss the work after the private view?)

  1. Hello,

    I am interested in finding out what you would charge for a week hiring for a group exhibition next year in September.

    Also, do you have events on at night and if so, how could we protect our screens and work. Do you have panels that we can use instead or our own and screw the paintings in?

    I am contacting you on behalf of the Leicester Sketch Club but would also be interested in other shows.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards
    Emma Fitzpatrick
