Gallery @ Half Moon

Gallery @ Half Moon is currently closed to the public; we hope to re-open sometime after the 17 May. Until then, please enjoy our online exhibitions.

AboveandBelow-gallery-3-portraitGallery @ Half Moon is our exciting space for local artists to display their work in the foyer of our children’s theatre. Come and view a range of different styles, all suitable for children and young people.

The art gallery is free to visit and is open during the theatre opening hours. Beneath some of the artwork, there are chalkboards for visitors of all ages to make their own responses. You can write a message or draw a picture and leave it for others to enjoy. We also have an art cart to enable children to do their own drawings and collages.

For all our exhibitions, we provide an art trail for children to complete appropriate for Explore/Discover Arts Award and a series of special events and workshops for schools and community groups. So, for example, school groups visiting the theatre for a performance can arrive 45 mins before the show so the children can complete the art trail. Find out more.

Developed as part of our Capital Refurbishment Project, Half Moon has created an exciting opportunity to support to the artistic community by inviting local artists to showcase their work
for free.

We are always looking for artists to exhibit for 3 month periods. We particularly like to hear from artists who live or work in Tower Hamlets. Works must be of a mixed-scale and suitable for a family audience. All works should be available for purchase and will be subject to a small commission
if sold.

For more information, contact us here.
