Overview
More
The Flora Twort Gallery houses the work of Flora Twort, an artist inspired by the local area and its people. A fantastic range of sketches, watercolours and prints can be viewed. The gallery also exhibits the Bedales costume collection, which consists of pieces dating from the 1700's. A selection of our collections are shown each year and changed annually. We also feature a regularly changing programme of exhibitions featuring work by local artists, community groups and schools. There are also activities for children and families throughout the year such as dressing up, gallery quizzes, arts and crafts and a town trail.
