The annual Rugby Open shows work from local artists, and now also further afield. It runs mid-November – mid-January. Admission is free. Closed Sundays and Mondays. Applications are accepted from September, so save the date for next year. Youth entries are also encouraged.
Floor One gallery is a hireable space for artists, makers, and groups to exhibit their own work. It is booked months ahead and there is a ballot where requested dates are oversubscribed. Contact RAGM to be added to the email list.
