133 King Street Gallery and Studios

19. January 2014

Applications are now being considered for four artist studios, one attached to a 1 bed residential unit, and for the new gallery at 133 King Street, Great Yarmouth.

Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust is in the process of repairing a Grade II Listed late 17th Century merchant’s house located on historic King Street in the centre of Great Yarmouth.
The building is being refurbished to accommodate a street-level gallery, one residential 3 bedroomed apartment, one single bed residential unit with studio and three artist’s studios. The works will be completed in April 2014.

133 KING STREET GALLERY
Proposals are invited for the management of the gallery. The gallery area is 179 m2 and has a fully glazed 19th Century shop front which is approx. 10 m in length. The gallery area includes a toilet suitable for disabled access and wash area, and opens onto an enclosed courtyard. There is also a cellar which can be used for some types of storage. To encourage an exceptional arts professional to locate to the area, the gallery is to be leased on extremely favourable terms, not including services and rates.
