OBS Gallery

The Tonbridge Arts Brochure contains a full listing of Arts events at Tonbridge School.


Old Big School Gallery brings contemporary art to the heart of the school.  It provides a space for a varied exhibition programme which attracts an audience from within as well as beyond the school community. 

The gallery is a non-profit space that showcases work from artists that are recent graduates as well as established names.  It also provides a platform for the work of Tonbridge School students and staff.  Exhibitions explore particular themes or provide a showcase for individual artists.   They often include objects that are not traditionally thought of as ‘art’ and may thereby entice their audience to re-examine their preconceptions about what art can be.  OBS Gallery provides a space for enquiry and reflection.

Three major exhibitions take place during the year;  the middle of January to the beginning of March, the middle of September to the beginning of November and the beginning of December.  Between these times there are  wall based exhibitions that take into account the space’s additional use for student exams.

 If you have any questions about current or future exhibitions contact Emily Glass, the OBS Gallery Curator.
