Courtyard Arts Centre in detail…

Courtyard Arts is a unique, artistic hub located in Hertford. Comprising a gallery and shop with two teaching studios, it has been a meeting place for creative minds for almost 25 years. 

The centre was established as a charity by a group of passionate, local artists seeking to create a space for all to enjoy art in a friendly, open environment. A quarter of a century later, Courtyard is now Hertford’s leading visual arts venue. 

The gallery at Courtyard Arts - alongside the spaces the centre curates at Hertford Theatre and Hanbury Manor - showcases an exciting and diverse range of work from both established and emerging artists. In addition to hosting exhibitions, each year the centre offers up-and-coming practitioners the opportunity to explore, develop and share their practice through student shows and an artist’s residency. 

Classes at Courtyard offer everyone of all ages and abilities the opportunity to discover a variety of media, including ceramics and glass in our fully-equipped studio, housing pottery wheels and kilns. 

As a locally loved art centre, community support is a fundamental part of Courtyard’s offering and the team, regularly run art programmes with young carers, dementia sufferers, recovering addicts, the elderly and local schools. In addition, Courtyard runs art classes at the centre for home-schooled children. 

Courtyard Arts is open Monday to Friday, 10am - 4pm. Visit to explore our programme of classes and exhibitions, and to find out more about how you can get involved!
