National Centre for Craft & Design

We are the largest venue in England entirely dedicated to the exhibition, celebration and promotion of national and international contemporary craft and design. Under one roof, our five gallery spaces showcase up to 20 world-class exhibitions every year from the most innovative, challenging and accomplished artists to new and emerging talent.

Working in partnership with artsNK, NCCD delivers diverse and high-quality arts experiences for visitors from across the UK, internationally and for the local community. NCCD is also home to Design Nation, a leading professional development organisation for British designer-makers.

There is a café on the ground floor of the building serving hot and cold food and drink.
