  • National Glass Centre

    In autumn 2015, we launched a new partnership with National Glass Centre in Sunderland to support the work of local glass artists and champion the heritage of glass making in the North East. We have dedicated space on the ground floor of our gallery showcasing beautiful glassware produced by National Glass Centre’s hot glass studio team, and in the coming months, visitors and clients to both venues will have the opportunity to receive exclusive access to experiences, events and exhibitions.

  • Forum Books

    In autumn 2016, The Biscuit Factory teamed up with Corbridge-based Forum Books to launch a mini pop-up bookshop; a unique collaboration within the UK. The Book Hus can be found on our ground floor and stocks as many as 100 eclectic titles at any given time. Curated by Forum Books on an ongoing basis, the selection encompasses art, design, food, travel and fiction, plus a handpicked selection of titles about the North East. We’re also thrilled to be working with Forum Books to host a range of exclusive author events in the gallery.

  • People's Theatre

    We are delighted to have forged a new relationship with People's Theatre that will see us supporting one another and members of the local arts scene in Newcastle. Our charitable arm – The Biscuit Factory Foundation - is sponsoring the People's Theatre arts programming which provides a platform for amateur and emerging artists. In the coming months, we will also be looking to develop a mentoring programme for exhibitors, with curators from The Biscuit Factory offering artists advice on how they can develop their portfolios and progress in their careers.



A perfect place to browse, with paintings, photography, ceramics and jewellery from local artists and craftsmen. The staff are fantastic and so helpful. We purchased artwork and then relaxed in the cafe upstairs. The best coffee in the area without a doubt, and certainly the best exhibition of artwork. Newcastle is so lucky to have this gem of a place.


Just the concept of having a full scale commercial art gallery on your doorstep should be enough. The Biscuit Factory goes that one step further in presenting both art and artists that might never otherwise get the exposure they deserve. If you're in the area, go there today! You won't be disappointed and may walk out with a piece of art that you'll always appreciate.


I loved this place. It was my first destination in Newcastle and I'm so happy I walked over. The staff were welcoming and I had such a nice visit. Clean, beautiful, crisp displays of such a range of art and craft. Paintings, ceramics, jewellery, glasswork, so much more to explore. A lovely place to spend an hour or two.
