Our new exhibition, Through The Locking Glass is now on in our Gallery.

A place to meet

Rheged is a gallery, café, cinema, shopping venue, workplace and creative space on the edge of the Northern Lakes. A place where friends, family and colleagues can share a meal, watch a film, hold a meeting, see an exhibition, buy a gift or catch up over coffee. A flexible space for getting together or enjoying time alone with a book or notepad; a place where stories are told, ideas are sparked and the Cumbrian landscape is a constant source of inspiration.

Gallery

Our modern, independent gallery hosts a dynamic programme of events, bringing together established and emerging artists in curated and touring exhibitions.
