About Us

Ferrers Gallery is a multi award winning independent gallery promoting British contemporary craft. The gallery is set in the beautiful landscape of Staunton Harold near Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire, and has three floors featuring the best of British Contemporary Craftsmanship, with jewellery, ceramics, glass, textiles, paintings and sculpture.

  • Top Floor - paintings, prints and regular exhibitions with work by regional artists
  • Middle Floor - British contemporary craft and applied arts
  • Ground Floor - focusses on work by British jewellers and a fantastic selection of unusual cards and gifts.

The top and middle floors have exhibitions running throughout the year.

Entry to the gallery and all exhibitions is free.

Ferrers Gallery is part of the Ferrers Centre for Arts and Crafts, where you will find a number of craft workshops, a bakery/deli and a tea room. You may wish to take a gentle stroll down by the lake to take a look at the picture postcard view of Staunton Harold Hall. The Hall is privately owned but there are permitted pathways to the lake where you can feed the ducks or visit the National Trust church of Staunton Harold, which is open on selected days during the summer. If the church is open when you visit do take time to enjoy its stunning frescoed ceilings.

There are also pathways that lead from the area into the National Forest and to the National Trust property of Calke Abbey which is located less than 2 miles away.

 

Ferrers Gallery is open Tuesday to Sunday and bank holiday Mondays 11am - 5pm. We are usually closed Christmas Day to New Year’s Day.

Please note that due to our rural location there may be times when the gallery is closed due to snow. We aim to update the website and our social networking sites if this happens so you are fully informed.
