  • Visitor Information

Dilston GroveSet up by the Cafe Gallery Projects London, who also run the nearby Cafe Gallery in the centre of Southwark Park just a five-minute walk away, Dilston Grove houses regular exhibitions in the former Clare College Mission Church. On the Southwest corner of Southwark Park and in a Grade II listed building dating back to 1911, it was designed by architects Sir John Simpson and Maxwell Ayrton and is one of the earliest examples of poured concrete construction. Today, Dilston Grove presents artists with a large exhibition space with past shows ranging from the hugely popular grass installation by Ackroyd and Harvey to the year-long REAP project. The Cafe Gallery Projects frequently run artist-led workshops and community events for all ages.
