We are pleased to announce that the Rooftop will be reopening to the public on Wednesday 2nd September with two exhibitions, Northants Open Studios and a September Salon of resident artist’s work.

Adult and children’s classes will also resume in September, please check our Whats On page for full details.

We are also running online exhibitions and our current call for artists is our Red themed exhibition. More details and an application form can be found here.
