About Us

Tucked away in the Norwich Lanes, once a 17th century skittle alley and formerly the Cat Trap jazz club, the Fairhurst is a unique and charming gallery space, hosting regular exhibitions.

The Fairhurst gallery champions contemporary fine art, bringing variety and brilliance to the city of Norwich. With a view to developing the careers of new professional artists and helping established practitioners reach new audiences, The Fairhurst repeatedly show inspirational work of the highest standards.

Established on Elm Hill in Norwich in 1949 by artist, restorer and dealer Joe Fairhurst the Fairhurst Gallery soon earned a reputation for working with great artists including Edward Seago and Alfred Munnings. Dealing in the highest quality fine art Joe was joined by his eldest son Tiz in 1976 who developed the framing and restoration workshop from where the Fairhurst team still provide bespoke framing and art conservation services of the highest quality.
