The Firehall has an active schedule of performances and festivals and the Lobby Gallery provides exposure to a diverse audience. Gallery hours are Wednesday – Saturday 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.


The Firehall is currently inviting proposals from emerging and established artists for exhibitions during the 2017/2018 Season.
