what's on


We are delighted to be hosting ‘Retrospective’ an exciting exhibition by talented photographer, David Crawford. Working in both black and white and colour, his current exhibition includes stunning landscapes as well as a smaller quantity of more abstract work.

John Fulthorpe


For the first time at Gallery Forty5 we are hosting John Fulthorpe for an exhibition of his original work. Encompassing a range of themes from still life to landscapes John works in oils, acrylics and pastel.

The Brothers Gillespie

The Brothers Gillespie are a traditional folk song duo from Northumberland, whose music combines searing sibling vocal harmony with arrangements of guitar, fiddle, mandolin and shruti box. Their repertoire spans material from Scotland, Northumberland, England, Ireland, the traveler tradition, border ballads and their own compositions. Strongly rooted in place, they descend beneath the national boundaries to find the common ground beneath us and to draw new power in the retelling of our histories. In their music you can hear the voice of this land and feel the power of the deep Celtic taproot that lies beneath.



All tickets £8 (£5 for under 16s)
