Deadline for receipt of completed form: 12 May 2024

An exciting opportunity has arisen to take over the operating of the café in Rugby Art Gallery and Museum and Library Building. 

This creative and family friendly service is situated in the heart of Rugby Town Centre, attracting around 80,000 visitors a year. Offering a range of galleries for local artist to international touring exhibitions and two local history galleries, we pride ourselves on our community. With family programming at the core, we are looking for a provider that will embed into the service and enhance one of Rugby’s key cultural assets. 

Expressions of interest are being sought for a suitable organisation to operate the Café. The successful organisation would be required to offer a selection of hot and cold beverages, sandwiches, snacks, light meals, cakes and pastries.
