Gallery hire now open for 2018 Exhibitions

The Babylon Gallery, would like to invite submissions from artists and groups to exhibit in our gallery in 2018.

It's a unique and flexible space with bags of charm. We're ideally located just a few minutes walk from the centre of the City and the railway station with regular trains to Norwich and London (just over an hour away).

We are the second most visited attraction after Ely Cathedral with over 25,000 visitors a year. We’re fully licensed, with disabled access and plentiful free parking just around the corner. Normal opening hours are Tuesday – Sunday, 12pm – 4pm.

We welcome submissions for both solo exhibitions or group shows at our beautiful riverside contemporary art gallery. If you are an artist living or working in the region (and beyond), with a body of work you wish to exhibit, we want to hear from you!

The Babylon Gallery also works to support our local artists and artists’ communities through our annual Summer Open Exhibition. Entries for next summer's exhibition will open in March 2018

We welcome applications from both established and emerging artists and groups. Please note that due to our resources we cannot take ‘on spec’ applications but need to have formal submissions accompanied with the information below.

Our summer open is a different selection process and open to all, details will be posted online the next few months.
