Side Gallery


5 - 9 Side . Newcastle upon Tyne . NE1 3JE . 0191 232 2208

Side Gallery is currently closed for a major redevelopment. With Heritage Lottery Fund support, we are enabling full gallery accessibility and enhanced exhibition spaces, a new study centre and improved collection housing. We're also working on a number of film, photography and curatorial projects in schools and communities across the North East. The gallery will reopen in October 2016 and it's going to be great... We're really sorry not to be able to show exhibitions at the gallery in 2015, but it'll be worth the wait. More information. For updates on the progress of the work, please join the Amber Newsletter.

We need your help to secure it for future generations, to support Side Gallery, to generate new projects with schools and communities and to build awareness of the work. AmberSide Trust has been set up to make this easier and you can donate via its Virgin Giving page here. Making your support this way means we may get the benefit of Gift Aid, which adds 25% to the value of whatever you cam afford.

You may know about the fantastic redevelopment of Side Gallery and its archive facilities. We're also building a new website which will make much more of our collection accessible. If you don't know about the collection...

• Over 28,000 photographs, 100 films - 400 individual stories and a single coherent narrative;

• A constantly growing body of work, documenting NE England and reaching beyond;

• Sustained for over 45 years - one of the most remarkable bodies of work in the history of documentary.

Your support will help to sustain Side Gallery and the AmberSide Collection for the next 50 years!
