A personal approach

 The Trust organises tours of the exhibitions and work in the sculpture park at Roche Court. The tours are led by our enthusiastic and expert staff who have knowledge and understanding of modern and contemporary art.

  • Tours are designed specifically for each visiting group, providing an individual approach, to ensure that the most is gained from their visit.
  • Staff work with all groups before, during and after each visit. Our tours are designed to support curriculum aims and other accreditations.
  • Tours can be arranged to take access and other needs into consideration.
  • Interpretation of the sculptures can be adapted for SEND visitors, for example through Multi-Sensory materials and Makaton.

The exhibitions are set within three spaces, the Artists House, Gallery and Sculpture Park, allowing discussion to take place in a variety of contexts. This encourages exploration of individual opinions and perceptions.

The New Art Centre exhibits over 60 internationally renowned and emerging artists. Exhibitions have included work by  Barbara Hepworth, Richard Long, Michael Craig-Martin, Anthony Caro and Antony Gormley.
