We host a programme of events throughout the year. Annual open studios events invite visitors to explore the building, meet the artists and makers in their workshops, take part in activities and provide an opportunity to either buy direct from the makers or discuss commissions. Annual events include the Spring Salon Sale in March, The Late Shows in May, and Ouseburn Open Studios in November.

We also host special events, exhibitions and activities as part of Ouseburn Festival in July and Heritage Open Days in September.
