ARTS & CULTURE
Hereford is brimming with creativity. Book a stay at the Longworth Hall Hotel to coincide with one of Herefordshire's many arts and craft festivals, or go to the theatre to round out a memorable evening in the town.
Meet hundreds of individual artists, see an array of artwork across the county in the city and countryside, in fabulous locations such as manor houses, historic barns, farms, churches and beautiful gardens. h.Art is really special for art lovers, promising personal encounters with some of the UK’s finest artists and makers in the intimacy of their own homes and studios.
During the h.Art festival artists, craft makers and creative businesses open their private studios every day from 11 am – 5 pm at least. Galleries put on special events, whilst groups get together to put on one-off exhibitions, in a wonderful mix of interesting venues.
Old Chapel Gallery is located in the heart of rural Herefordshire, between Kington and Leominster. Pembridge is a key position on the popular North Herefordshire black and white village trail. Old Chapel Gallery is firmly established as a centre of excellence for casual browsers and serious collectors alike. Lovers of contemporary British arts & crafts can find work by local and nationally established artists and makers, alongside the innovative work of talented newcomers.
The Everyman is Gloucestershire's theatre - and has been serving the county (and beyond) since 1891.
The Everyman presents a wide range of productions, including ballet, opera, drama, dance, comedy, music events and our traditional family pantomime, as well as many community projects, education workshops and youth theatre sessions. You can come to the Everyman for a show, a workshop or even to dine or drink in their café, bar or restaurant, there-s something for everyone.
Visitors can see the UK’s widest range of working pumps and engines from across Herefordshire, neighbouring counties and Wales, most of which are the last working examples of their type. Heritage engineering at its best – and wholly run by volunteers.
The museum is one of Herefordshire’s leading visitor attractions with something for all ages. Children enjoy using hands on exhibits, including in the unique Heritage Water Park, and the museum has a permanent exhibition to Hereford in WW2. Every exhibit is waiting to tell a story.
