Red Box Gallery


The Red Box Gallery can be found at the heart of the village. Opened at Easter 2013, Oxfordshire's smallest art space hosts exhibitions by local and national artists and poets as well as clubs, societies and schools. The ambition of the Gallery is to use the iconic box to provide a backdrop for visually impressive exhibits that that will make people think about Brightwell cum Sotwell, its locale and its people - or just create something beautiful or even thought provoking.

Exhibits are changed every few months and new ideas are always welcome. If you are keen to exhibit, please contact Robert Seatter robert.seatter@bbc.co.uk telephone 07739 300258
