The Shire Hall Gallery is a contemporary visual arts venue located in the heart of Stafford Town Centre. It has an exciting range of temporary exhibitions that change every 6 to 8 weeks. We also have a contemporary craft shop which stocks jewellery, glass, ceramics and greetings cards by British Designer Makers. You can also visit the Historic Courtroom.

The Shire Hall Gallery offers an exciting and interesting experience to visitors of all ages with information, workshops and activities for all ages and abilities. Our exhibitions show artwork from local, regional and national artists on different themes, using fascinating techniques and materials. Our amazing Multi Sensory Room is available daily for you to book for 30 minutes or an hour. It is free to use and our friendly staff will show you how to use all the equipment. This is a great way to support an individual with special needs , to spend quality time with babies and young children and a wonderful space to relax and unwind!
