Hire our gallery

Citizens Art London Gallery
Blue House Yard

Our first, small but mighty, gallery space opened on 1st September 2022 with our inaugural exhibition on the theme of New Beginnings, and it was a wonderful event - check out the images from our PV, below - and huge thanks to photographer Venetia Jollands for capturing the evening.


The gallery hosted several exhibitions in autumn 2022, and we are programming an exciting line-up of exhibitions and events for 2023.

We welcome further applications from artists, photographers and curators for solo or group exhibitions.



Key information about our gallery space:

  • 8.1 x 2.5 metres of wall-space for use by hirers 

  • Prominent location within this hugely popular community hub - surrounded by independent makers

  • Excellent fully-glazed frontage, prominently visible from Station Road and located very close to Wood Green tube station (Piccadilly line)

  • LED track lighting throughout

  • Eaves height of 4+ metres

  • Use of the popular yard area to hold talks, workshops or potentially install public art (subject to consents)

  • Available to hire for a minimum of one week, and to a maximum of three weeks

  • Available for solo shows or groups


How much?

The hire fee for the gallery is £290 for the first week, and £160 per week thereafter (to a maximum of three weeks). A commission of 15% is payable on all sales during the hire period, and we supply a payment system for hirers to use.

Because Blue House Yard is a "meanwhile use" scheme with affordable rents, we are able to pass that benefit onto hirers of the space and offer highly competitive rates.

Along with hire of the space itself, we will support artists and partners as much as we can, including:

  • Supply of staff to assist with invigilation (if required, and subject to £11.95 per hour Real Living Wage payment to staff by hirers)

  • Marketing support will include listing exhibitions on EventBrite, CuratorSpace and ArtRabbit, unless hirer requests otherwise

  • Social media marketing support, including but not limited to:

    • Account takeover of Citizens Art London instagram account

    • Dedicated instagram posts before, during and following your exhibition


We have limited availability up to July 2023 - get in touch with your preferred dates to discuss further.
