UpStairs Gallery at Exchange Square, Beccles, Suffolk has been running since 2007 with Michelle Payne as gallery manager. It has been featured in many publications since its beginning and has grown to win seven awards, including Pride in the Community, Suffolk County Council and Waveney Chamber of Commerce Growth and Redevelopment, and Barclays Trading Places Top 100 business. The ethos of the gallery was to allow all artists to participate in exhibiting their work, artists could display their works commission free, which means they take 100% sales, to allow them maximum revenue for their skills and development. Student, emerging, established and professional artists could apply, giving the viewer a variety of choice and the flexibility with revenue to select their choice, prices reflect accordingly. The artists and craft-makers had 15 large roomed arts gallery to rotate every month.
