A new exhibition featuring three of our artists will be held at "The Station", in Richmond North Yorkshire from 5th to the 16th of November. Petra Lloyd, Heather Kinsella and Paul Dillon will be showing new work featuring ceramics, prints and paintings. Meet the artists at a special opening event on Friday 4th November from 7pm - 8:30pm.

Judith Gill is running two "Glorious Glass" workshops - the first is on Saturday 12th November (10 - 12) and the second is on Saturday 3rd December (10 - 12). No experience is needed as Judith, a professional glass designer, will guide you through the fascinating and fun procesess. Your work will be fired after the class and returned to the Bridge for you to collect. Click on Events above, or here for more details.

What We Do

Our Mission Statement: The Bridge provides a vibrant community led venue to support artists and encourage visual arts involvement for Darlington. Many artists who had a presence at the Arts Centre can now be found at the Bridge. It is also the home of other arts-based organisations.
