Water Street Gallery is owned and directed by two practising artists Mike and Rosemary Holcroft who met at the Royal College of Art, London.

Over the years they have immersed themselves in many aspects of the arts, being involved in successfully running and curating galleries and studios in Wales, in addition to exhibiting their own art.

On returning to their northern roots via London, Guildford and Wales, they purchased the Water Street Gallery, taking it forward in building up a rich and diverse stable of highly acclaimed artists and planning informative and entertaining exhibition programs. Expanding the building onto another level enabled the introduction of solo exhibitions running alongside mixed exhibitions, together with establishing a beautifully stocked craft and gift gallery / shop.

Their passion for art continues in serving a wide audience of patrons and artists, both local to Calderdale, throughout Northern England and beyond.
