The Old Press is a 'for more than profit' social enterprise championing the power of the arts from the heart of Cornwall's Clay Country. 


Our Work

We are passionate about art and determined to make it happen right here in St Austell.  We support local artists and the wider community by

  • Providing beautiful exhibition space in our town centre building for emerging and established artists and craftspeople to market their work. We charge cost recovery commission only.
  • Creating cost price 'incubation' studio space for both long and short term occupation and residencies.
  • Identifying innovative projects, outreach partnerships and training opportunities in arts and heritage to engage volunteers and provide work experience.

If you could please take just a couple of minutes to answer our survey on Old Press Exhibitions and events we would greatly appreciate your feedback
