About Us

The Cank Street Gallery, Leicester's largest independent contemporary art gallery, is located at the heart of the city in Leicester Old Town.  With an ever-changing selection of paintings, handmade prints and sculpture, we represent emerging and established Leicestershire and UK artists.  We feature collaborative exhibitions with the Leicester Society of Artists and hold an annual 'open' art competition for anyone to enter.

With the King Richard III Visitor Centre and Cathedral to one side and the market place to the other, the Old Town's historic lanes and shopping arcades are home to a variety of independent shops giving the area its unique character. Here you can find vintage and boutique clothing, contemporary homewares, galleries and jewellers.  The area has a flourishing food, drink and social scene with fine dinning, delicious gelato, home roasted coffee and, of course, cake.
