Our elegant main gallery space, which displays a variety of treasures from the Shipley collection, can be hired exclusively for wedding ceremonies, drinks receptions and wedding breakfasts. With its original features, grand piano and wonderful displays, the Shipley Art Gallery needs very little decoration to add to the beauty of the venue. 

On permanent display in the main gallery is an outstanding painting by the Venetian artist Jacopo Robusti Tintoretto (1518-1594), ‘Christ Washing the Disciples Feet’ was originally painted for the church of San Marcuolo in Venice, eventually given to St Nicholas’ Cathedral in Newcastle and purchased by Tyne & Wear Museums in 1986.
