Visit the gallery

Thank you for your interest.  

The Sime Gallery is normally open weekly on Wednesdays and Sundays from 2–4pm and, during August, we are able to open the gallery for more dates and times. Please get in touch for more information.  There is no need to book but if you would like to let us know you are coming please text or call 07951 024220 or email us on

Admission is free but as the Sime Gallery receives no regular funding, we would be very grateful if you would consider a £3 donation.

A small range of items are available to purchase. Drinks and cakes/biscuits are also available.

Regrettably the Gallery is not accessible for wheelchair users – there are handrails on the stairs and there is an accessible toilet downstairs.   We are able to bring items down for people to view. 

Our volunteers look forward to seeing you.
