Hereford Contemporary will not happen in 2017, due to the closure of Brightstripe – Cultural Health CIC.  

Brightstripe is having to close, due to circumstances beyond our control around inherited pension regulations.

Sadly we will close on the 31st March, but have planned to honour, complete and make provision for all current initiatives. The last four years have seen some great successes, including the Hereford Contemporary event last year, which had a wonderful response from visitors and exhibitors. 

The Brightstripe Team sincerely thank everyone that’s supported Hereford Contemporary in the last 23 years, your involvement has helped create a strong legacy for Herefordshire and creative businesses across the country. 

We are currently in  conversation with an organisation about Hereford Contemporary’s future. As soon as anything more is known we will update the information here.
