We have seven awesome venues for you to exhibit in, upon receipt of payment, we will start allocating artists and makers to each venue to ensure an even distribution of different styles.
It is unlikely that you will be in the same venue twice, if you were in one venue last year, you may not be there again, sorry!
Due to the popularity of certain venues, unless you have very good reason (i.e. disability, availability), artists’ choices won’t be considered to ensure that everyone is treated equally and fairly.
Curious about the venues? Please find some information below!
St James' Church
No one can miss the beautiful church situated smack bang on the middle of the town.
Whilst it is not the warmest venue, despite the vast space, the displays of art feel quite intimate. It is also a light and open venue
We provide 3 boards per artist with plinths if needed. There are also tables but you will need your own table cloths.
Additionally, with church services occurring on the Sunday, you have a guaranteed footfall!
A favourite for many artists. Kingshill house is slightly outside the town centre on Kingsdown just off Kingshill Lane. As we take over the entire house for the weekend, artists are placed over the two floors. It is a very communal environment and many visitors like to start or finish the trail here, so it gets plenty of footfall.
Parking is available outside Kingshill House and there is a small lift to the first floor if needed
All the rooms are well lit and large so plenty of room for everybody
The Tashi Centre
A new addition in 2018, the Tashi centre is a fantastic venue located on Water street.
It has an open courtyard so an excellent place for 3D artists, the rooms are light and bright and show off the work brilliantly.
The only downside are the stairs, so be prepared to carry your work (and the boards) up the small staircases! We have rails in situ ready for the wires and hooks which we provide.
Toilets available, parking in the adjacent car park
Another of our smaller venues, as it functions daily as an art gallery, it requires little to no preparation other than turning up on the day to set up.
This is the only venue which facilitates those who are unable to steward their own work, as such, if you wish to exhibit here and can’t steward your own work due to other commitments, please let us know ASAP!
Barn Owl Gallery
Barn Owl Gallery is the newest addition to Tyndale Arts Week, and as a purpose built gallery it is perfect for any artist!
Easy access for artists and visitors. It is straight forward to load and unload outside and parking is nearby but has an hour limit.
It houses three artists’ and makers’ works comfortably and as it is right in the centre of Dursley, visitors shouldn’t be able to miss you!
The Dursley Tabernacle
Another venue located on Kingshill Road just across the road from the Courtyard cafe, this is another well-lit space. With easy access to the kitchen, you will never want for a cuppa!
There is comfortable seating and toilets available.
Access is via a ramp for artists and visitors. However, you can’t park directly outside when loading or unloading, so you will need to be able to carry your work from nearby. Parking is available in the side streets and further up the road.
Dursley Methodist Church
Another church located smack bang in the centre of Dursley, it gets plenty of visitors and each artist gets a clear allocated U-shaped space with a table top. They have some white table cloths available but if you have your own please bring them along
The church have their own display boards which they are happy for you to hang your work either via hooks and wires from the top of the boards or from hooks nailed into the boards (i.e. Ikea 3 pin white hooks, they have some available)
We provide hooks and wires but it is always useful if you have extra fishing line.
During the event the church runs a café with tea/coffee and lunches available. The start time on Sunday may be slightly later due to morning service but Phil usually uses the art as part of his sermon, so plenty of attention!
