About The Court Room Gallery

The Court Room Gallery is part of the historic Court House built in 1872. This spacious, well-lit area of the building has been used in recent years to display art exhibitions, where people can browse and purchase pieces of artwork designed by local artists. The space is 7x3.5 metres and can hold up to 25 people seated in rows. There is a further raised area with the Judge's table which seats 16 and is 5 metres long.

The Court Room Gallery is available to hire for short term exhibitions by individuals or groups of artists. We are holding an open call for artists who would like their art to be featured in our next exhibition. Please contact framlingham.library@suffolklibraries.co.uk for more information.
