Beaconsfield's holistic vision is to provide a critical space for creative enquiry. Founded to occupy a niche between the institution, the commercial and the 'alternative' the charity maintains a unique venue which has provided a laboratory and presentation space for artists since 1995.

Set up in the former Lambeth Ragged School by artists with a track record for organising grass-roots events, Beaconsfield commissions, and is commissioned, nationally and internationally and has a history of innovative collaboration with other organisations and individuals, on and off-site.

The annual programme typically includes a range of exhibitions, an evening membership club and interventions in public space.

Curious little gallery just tucked beside the railway line running into Waterloo. The exhibitions themselves are somewhat a bit hit and miss, although there is a fantastic exhibition space in a railway arch (if only they would do more with it!)

More notable, and very much worth a visit (especially for Sunday Brunch), is its wonderful cafe, The Ragged Canteen, which serves great vegetarian...more
