Rhodes Arts Complex & Bishop's Stortford Museum

  • About
    Arts Complex

    The Arts Complex is the largest community venue in the area. It can be used for a variety of activities, local amateur and youth theatre, musicals, dances, exhibitions, weddings, meetings and professional theatre programmes.

    Museum

    The Rhodes Museum was established in 1938 in two listed Victorian Buildings, one of which is the birthplace of Cecil Rhodes, Victorian Empire Builder. As such it is a significant local landmark and has national and international links. Today, the Rhodes Museum and Local History Museum have merged to become the Bishop's Stortford Museum. The collections are housed together and provide a new focus on the town's rich local history and unique links with the story of Cecil Rhodes, Empire and Africa.

    There are modern galleries with interactive displays featuring:

    Victorian Bishop's Stortford

    A Victorian Drawing Room

    Trades and Buildings of the town

    The Gilbey Gallery

    History and Heritage of Bishop's Stortford

    The Miss Pye Collection

    Europe and Africa

    Rhodes and Africa

    The African Gallery Southern

    Africa after Rhodes

    There is also an Education Room and a Temporary Exhibition Gallery (The Thorleybourne Gallery) hosts a variety of exhibitions throughout the year, art exhibitions, touring exhibitions and displays from the museum's reserve collections.
