Tender opportunity with Walsall Council
Opportunity for long-term leasehold in New Art Gallery Walsall

Walsall Council wishes to seek views and opinions from the marketplace on the proposal to grant a long-term leasehold interest in the town’s New Art Gallery.

The council wants to gauge the level of interest and welcome innovative solutions that could meet the Council’s objectives and financial challenges as well as meeting Arts Council of England’s funding requirements.

The New Art Gallery is an iconic arts venue in Walsall, West Midlands. It has international significance. The Gallery is recognised by Arts Council England (ACE) as a National Portfolio Organisation, and is jointly funded by ACE and Walsall Council.

The aspiration is for the New Art Gallery Walsall to retain its status as a National Portfolio Organisation, and to continue to provide high quality cultural and education services to the people of Walsall and the West Midlands.

The Council wish to secure a viable and sustainable future for the New Art Gallery Walsall, and recognise that this will need to involve a very significant reduction on the dependency on the annual Council subsidy.

The Council and ACE wish to explore innovative new governance, funding and management structures; to develop an exciting and ambitious vision and proposition to engage the people of Walsall and beyond; to raise aspirations and civic pride through the delivery of a world class cultural offer.

The Prospectus sets out the nature of the opportunity, and details of the exhibitions and collections held at the Gallery. In the first instance interested parties should contact:
