Low Cost Exhibition Space in a Museum for North Herts Artists!

The Arches is a display space in North Hertfordshire Museum. Located within the Terrace Gallery, it is available for hire by local North Hertfordshire based artists or groups. During museum opening times your work will be
seen by museum visitors. In addition, owing to its location within the Terrace Gallery, your work will also gain exposure to businesses and private parties who rent the Terrace Gallery for their meetings or engagements.

About us
North Hertfordshire Museum opened fully in 2019. Situated in Brand Street in Hitchin, the museum tells the story of North Hertfordshire District. It was formed from the merger of the former Hitchin and Letchworth Museums and displays collections of archaeology, art, natural history, social history and more. The museum is open six days a week: Tuesday to Saturday 10.30am – 4.30pm, and Sundays 11am – 3pm.

The museum provides a changing programme of exhibitions in addition to its permanent displays. These include major touring exhibitions, some borrowed from national museums, as well as items from our own collections. The Arches is a space designed to be hired by artists living or working in North Hertfordshire, although we may
occasionally accept requests from those living in neighbouring Districts.
