Prema Arts Centre is open Tue-Fri 10.30am until 5pm and admission to all exhibitions is completely free. If you're making a special trip over to see any of our exhibitions do give us a tinkle on 01453 860703 just to check that all spaces are available for viewing for the time of your visit.

We're often open at weekends too although the upstairs gallery may not be accessible due to a workshop taking place or a theatre doing a get-in.
