The Holy Biscuit

1 Clarence Street


Newcastle upon Tyne



Please note that the Holy Biscuit office is staffed Tuesday – Friday only.


During exhibitions, the galleries are usually open Tuesday to Friday 11am – 4pm and specific Saturdays 1 – 4pm, please check individual exhibition details for further information .

After over 8 years of being open to the public and commissioning, curating, facilitating and hosting hundreds of projects, exhibitions and events we are entering into a research and development process to dedicate time to PROCESS during October 2018 – February 2019.

During this time there will be no Holy Biscuit curated exhibitions within the gallery as we focus on our research and development of the future programme. Mixing Bowl and Painting for Fun will continue as usual, alongside specific PROCESS projects and the Shieldfield Artist Residency. Holy Biscuit is still available to hire during this time.


From time to time the galleries are also closed for exhibition changeover or private events.

We recommend that you check on the What’s On section on the front page of our website

or our Facebook page for specific details.
