Hidden away in a courtyard behind a renovated print works, The Old Ambulance Depot is a unique art space whose mission is to make fresh art visible.

The well-proportioned space is the perfect venue for expression across all mediums from painting to film to installations and performance art.

The Old Ambulance Depot’s boundaries are wide and their willingness to experiment is vast. It’s a playground for art and they love looking at things with fresh eyes. Perhaps it’s something to do with the children’s playground that’s just through the wall.
