Open Wednesday – Saturday 10am to 4pm or any other time by appointment.


Chapel Arts Cheltenham is an exciting new venue, located in the thriving area of St James’.  The former Baptist chapel has been modernised and restored to create a fantastic, flexible arts space which will allow for an array of events.

Founded by Ian James, formerly of Martins Gallery in Montpellier Parade, Chapel Arts will continue to bring exciting, contemporary paintings in a range of media alongside interesting sculpture in wood, steel, glass and bronze.

In addition, the venue can seat in excess of 100 people, allowing us to include music, concerts, poetry and guest speakers.  Space has been created with flexibility in mind, therefore providing a range of options from large full-height spaces through to small intimate meeting rooms.

And of course, no good venue would be complete without a coffee break, so we hope you will stop by and visit us and stay for a cup and a tempting slice of freshly made cake at Coffee ‘n’ Cake @ Chapel Arts.

We are delighted to announce our upcoming event


The Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers is one of the world’s premier printmaking organisations.

The RE Rebels exhibition celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of their founder.

A number of prints have been chosen to celebrate this anniversary show. 25 prints have been selected by Jenny Ramkalawon, curator for prints and drawings at the British Museum.

These 25 prints will be included in two box sets. One will be held in the collection of the British Museum. The second box set has been gifted to Her Majesty The Queen.

The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge has also selected 27 works which they will hold in a boxed set.

Both Chapel Arts and the Bankside Gallery will show the combined 52 works concurrently between 25th April and 12th May.

Chapel Arts will have members of the society visiting the gallery to talk about the history of the society and walk people around the exhibition, explaining the different techniques and processes being used.

25th April – 12th May 2018
