**Please note: we are currently only accepting bookings of the Clore Studio up to and including Sunday 7 September 2014**.

The South London Gallery is a distinctive and elegant setting for a range of private functions, receptions and corporate events. As a registered charity, all income generated from venue hire directly supports the gallery’s education and artistic programmes. Our charges start from £600+VAT for a half-day booking.

The gallery's Clore Studio can be used for:

  • Marriage and civil partnership ceremonies
  • Wedding receptions
  • Canapé receptions
  • Parties 
  • Private dinners 
  • Filming and photo shoots 
  • Conferences 
  • Product launches 
  • Presentations 
  • Away-days 
  • Meetings


The Clore Studio is a contemporary and stylish setting for both daytime and evening events with capacity for up to 60 guests. Illuminated from above by a skylight, the Clore Studio also benefits from fully pivoting doors which open out onto the gallery’s spacious rear garden. The space can also be blacked out for film screenings, talks and presentations.

The Clore Studio is available to hire in the day and evening Tuesday to Sunday, except on Wednesday and Thursday evenings when bookings must end by 4pm. 

Evening bookings must end by 11pm.

For weddings, civil partnership ceremonies and receptions please note that you can hire the Clore Studio for your ceremony or reception but not both.

If you are planning a dinner party for up to 26 guests, you may wish to consider reserving the gallery's double height room in No67, the gallery's café-restaurant. For enquiries and reservations please contact Hamish Pritchard at No67: or 020 7252 7649
