Moncrieff-Bray Gallery

Moncrieff-Bray Gallery

Moncrieff-Bray Gallery and Sculpture Garden is a commercial art space in Petworth specialising in contemporary art and sculpture by established and emerging artists.

The spectacular premises is a 120 metre converted Sussex barn set in a landscaped sculpture garden just outside the town centre, where high quality but accessible art will engage visitors and encourage them to develop an interest in art and sculpture. Due to the scale of the gallery, visitors can be assured of a wide range of work to view at any one time and they hold three to four major exhibitions a year.

Petworth Film House

Petworth Film House is a not-for-profit community organisation run by Volunteers and managed by a committee of local people, our objectives are to give each film-night audience a highly engaging and memorable experience, we also seek to promote local community interest in film as an art and as a medium of information, education and entertainment.

All proceeds go directly to fund improvement projects in Leconfield Hall.  So far PFH has contributed to insulating the roof, has fully funded the installation of hi speed internet and wifi throughout the entire building, and is now working towards installing facilities to enable live broadcast events to be shown, as well as upgrading the halls audio system.
