A diverse arts programme for all imaginations.

By nature, we’re an artistic organisation.

Whether we’re celebrating Shakespeare or showcasing thought-provoking contemporary exhibitions, our evolving cultural programme draws on our rich historical collection as well as promoting cutting edge visual arts. Sharing the wonder of all things creative is woven into our spirit.

Delve into the shelves of the ornate library, or immerse yourself in a musical performance against the stunning backdrop of Mount Stuart. Art aficionado or not, here you can experience the arts in a unique way.

Get inspired. Indulge your creativity. Share in something exclusive – that’s open to everyone.

Visual Arts Programme

A powerhouse of creative activity, we host a variety of events and exhibitions throughout the year to pique your curiosity. This wouldn’t be possible without the welcoming, nurturing environment we create for artists. Mount Stuart has always been a place of innovation. A place where people have asked ‘What if?’ We encourage all the artists we work with to do the same.
