Historic Moot Hall to Showcase Local Talent

Brampton Zazz
by local artist Steven Warnes

Brampton's historic Moot Hall, a building which itself has been captured thousands of times by artists, both local and visiting, is set to become the centrepiece of the re-branding of the town.

With the support of Brampton Parish Council, Hadrian’s Wall Heritage, and Brampton & District Business Association, plans are being submitted for a grant towards bringing the Moot Hall and the Tourist Information Centre up to date, while retaining its character in a tasteful and practical manner. A previous bid by the Parish Council has been sucessful and they have now recieved funding to purchase high quality display/exhibition equipment to mount and showcase art and craftwork.

A public consultation revealed that the people of Brampton support the idea of a space for artists and groups to display their work. The idea of a rooftop cafe has been rejected but improved facilities for tea & coffee making at events will be available.
There are many different artists in the area, some work alone; others belong to a wide range of groups and gatherings.
A recent trail to test see if there was sufficient interest in providing a town centre exhibition space had positive results.
Any artists, sculptors, musicians, performers, crafters or writers interested in an opportunity to showcase their work please forward your details to marked Brampton Arts or leave your details at Hairport 46 Main Street Brampton CA8 1SB where a database will be formed.
All participating artists will have an opportunity to join Brampton Gallery of the Arts. This is a free service to promote arts in the area.
