Shrewsbury’s Market Hall has become a haven for a growing colony of artists and handcrafters who have turned a large part of the market’s upper floor into a creative quarter. 


Head up to the gallery level and you’ll find artists and designer-makers at work, as well as giant murals by the Shrewsbury-based international artist Matt Sewell.


Matt’s urban mural, overlooking the gallery, was painted to celebrate the story of a rare American black-crowned heron that mysteriously set home in the town’s Quarry Park Dingle for several months in 2017.


Artists and handcrafters to be found working in their studios, on the gallery level, include Rosie Read, Karen Duffy, Brigitta Shuker, at Studio Yi, and Alison Staples, of Romy Design.


New to the market hall is The Viewing Deck on the third floor, used as an art exhibition and workshop space. Exhibitions are managed by English Bridge Studios, and during the Arts Trail the Viewing Deck will be one of the three main venues for the exhibition of local and regional artists’ work interpreting the theme of ‘Time’.


Opening Times

Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday: 10am – 4pm
