The main feature of the ArtSpeak Ambles element of the programme is our gallery walkthroughs. These are a great introduction to art, they are relaxed, informal and sociable.

Our gallery walkthroughs have given participants the opportunity to meet new people and gain knowledge around different artworks whilst exploring the latest exhibitions at some fantastic venues in the East Midlands and further afield.

In Nottingham we have had walkthroughs and visits to Djanogly Gallery, Nottingham Contemporary, The National Justice Museum, New Art Exchange, Primary, The DH Lawrence Birthplace Museum and Newstead Abbey.

Our visits have also taken us to Compton Verney in Warwickshire, John Clare Cottage in Peterborough, The National Gallery and Courtauld Gallery in London, The Yorkshire Sculpture Park in Wakefield, The Harley Gallery in Worksop, The Museum of Making in Derby and Chatsworth House in Derbyshire. 

Beyond April 2023, there will be less ArtSpeak Ambles visits. However, if you would like to be told about future walkthroughs at The Lakeside Djanogly Gallery, or Newstead Abbey, please sign up to our mailing list by contacting
