The Anteros Arts Foundation is a charity for education and the promotion of the arts in Norfolk that is run by a small and dedicated team.
We offer a Fine Art Diploma, teach short courses, manage two gallery spaces that rotate exhibitions every fortnight, maintain an art reference library, provide a varied programme of live music and performances and offer room hires for private events, workshops, meetings & weddings.
Anteros Arts Foundation is entirely self-funded and not-for-profit. We are incredibly fortunate and grateful to be housed in a beautiful Tudor building, built in 1543.
RE-OPENING: We will be opening our doors again on 11th August with the Anteros Arts Diploma student show, Emerge. If you have walked past the building, you may also have noticed that we are currently running an Art Raffle to be drawn in 3 weeks' time. All prizes have been kindly donated by Anteros staff, tutors and studio holders. Tickets are only £1. Your support is much appreciated.
We are so looking forward to seeing you. In order to keep all our visitors safe we would appreciate it if you would have a look at our safety guide prior to your visit and please remember to wear a mask. Thank you.
PLANNING YOUR VISIT
Anteros will be open again for visitors from 11th August. We want all our visitors to stay safe and happy so ask that you follow the guide here.
Our opening hours are 9:30-5pm Tuesday-Saturday. Anteros does not have its own car park, however there are multiple public car parks nearby. Colegate, Elm Hill and Magdalen St are the closest. We are easily accessible via train (approximately 15 minutes walk from Norwich station), bus (between Anglia Square and Tombland stops) or bike (racks available at St Clements Church and Fye Bridge).
We have two gallery spaces, the Main Gallery and the Front Room. Exhibitions are rotated on a fortnightly basis. Visit our Exhibitions page to find out about current and forthcoming exhibitions. Have a look at the artists who have exhibited at Anteros in the past here.
Anyone with connections in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire may apply to exhibit at Anteros. If you are interested in applying to hold an exhibition please have a look at our Exhibit at Anteros page.
We offer a wide range of art courses including those specialising in oil and watercolour painting, sculpture, drawing and photography. Find out which courses are currently available to book here.
We also run a diploma course in Fine Art which incorporates all our courses as well as access to a shared studio space and designated mentor for a year. We are currently accepting applications for January 2021. Have a look at our Diploma page to find out more.
We have a number of rooms available to hire for meetings, courses, workshops and other private events. Our tenants at The Merchant’s House cafe can supply a range of refreshments too including teas, coffees, cakes and sandwiches.

Our characterful Tudor building provides the perfect backdrop for weddings, offering an array of intimate rooms and spaces. We have a range of options available and are always happy to discuss individual preferences or requirements.
Most of our wedding slots fall in the summer months when we take a break from exhibitions. However, we can sometimes fit weddings in at other times given sufficient notice.
