Balcony Gallery

Exhibit your work in the Balcony Gallery at Attenborough Arts Centre

The Balcony Gallery sits on the first floor of Attenborough Arts Centre and is a key feature for visitors as it connects our art studios and offices to the bustling Attenborough Café, Diana Princess of Wales Hall, Front of House and new galleries.

Local artists and groups can hire the gallery for a minimum of two weeks.

  • In addition to this there are three glass display cases for small 3D work.
  • Technical support is available at a small cost as well as the production of descriptive panels and labels.
  • The University of Leicester also offers a high quality catering service for exhibition opening events and Preview Evenings.
