ABOUT US The Biscuit Factory opened its doors in 2002; the vision of local businessman Ramy Zack. A commercial art gallery that showcases the work of more than 200 artists every season - we’re proud to be the largest art, craft and design gallery of its kind in the UK. Located in the Ouseburn Valley - dubbed the city’s ‘cultural quarter’- we’re surrounded by artist studios, cultural attractions, music venues, pubs and eateries. It’s a fantastic place to be; brimming with creativity and interesting things to see and do every day of the week. Our heritage lies at the heart of the business. Housed within a former Victorian warehouse, we’ve retained many of the building’s original features - think bricked walls and wooden celing beams. This provides a beautiful, inspiring backdrop for our artwork unlike anything else you’ll see in the city. In recent years, the business has expanded. We have an in-house cafe, The Factory Kitchen, which takes its inspiration from continental Europe. Adjoining the gallery is our à la carte restaurant, artisan, which serves modern British cuisine using locally sourced ingredients, and is listed in the newly published 2017 Good Food Guide. We also play host to a range of events in our purposebuilt function space The Biscuit Room, including weddings, corporate dinners, charity fashion shows and vintage fairs, to name but a few. Our new winter magazine features highlights from our new exhibition, plus lots of exciting goings-on in the coming months. If you’d like to stay up-to-date with our latest news and events, and receive exclusive invitations, simply visit our website and sign up to our free e-newsletter.
