altOne of Uppingham's most loved art galleries has been given one month to find new premises.

The North Street East Gallery, recently host to Uppingham's  annual 'Celebrating the Arts in Uppingham' event, is urgently seeking new premises following the  sale of its building on the corner of North Street East and Orange Street.  The gallery has been given only one month to vacate the premises with the new building owner apparently not being interested in continuing the gallery's lease. 

The search is now on for a new home for the gallery which was set to be a key attraction of the new Antiques, Arts, Books and Creative Crafts Trail in the town. Information on any possible new site should be forwarded either directly to the gallery or to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
