Annual Showcase of work by students from the John Hughes’ Art Masterclasses at Westacre Theatre

Now running until 5 May, this eagerly anticipated Art Exhibition has become a regular highlight in the students’ year.

Encouraged to experiment in a wide variety of different materials, the participants in the weekly tutorials are always testing themselves with fresh ideas in perceptive observation and the creative use of colour.  The exciting display demonstrates how they enjoy studying subjects in the purpose-built classroom during the workshop sessions as well as outside around the landscaped lagoon in the Theatre’s scenic setting.

Trained at Cambridge Art School, Kingston School of Art, and Goldsmith’s College in London, tutor John Hughes has a wealth of experience in art education.  With works accepted at several London venues including The Mall Galleries and The Royal Watercolour Society, he is always available for talks, demonstrations and workshops.

Always open at performance times, you can also call in during weekdays by prior appointment; please call 01760 755007.

Exhibiting at Westacre Theatre…

The exhibition space at Westacre Theatre has been extended as part of our ongoing development work. The new spaces include our existing foyer area, new bar, new link and separate new gallery area.  We usually have between two and three different artists exhibiting with us each season. We always aim to give preference to local artists but are happy to exhibit work from further afield.

The Gallery is open at all performance times.

Visitors are very welcome on other weekdays too, but please always check before you intend to visit by calling the Theatre on 01760 755 007 to make certain there will be someone available to open up the spaces.


If you would be interested in having an exhibition here with us then please do get in touch with the Theatre office on 01760 755 007
