Sunday Spot is an open-access programme of hands-on activities for families which takes place every Sunday afternoon. The programme consists of two strands: monthly artist-led workshops for 3-12
year-olds and a regular artist-designed space that supports
self-directed play to include younger children.


On the last Sunday of every month from 2-4pm, our artist-led Sunday Spot workshops offer free, drop-in creative activities for children and families. Taking place in our dedicated studio space, workshops are playful, experimental and different each month. Click here to find out more about our upcoming workshop.

Sessions are supported by our Art and Play Team and are ideal for children aged 3-12 years and their parents or guardians.

Sunday Spot has been running since June 2010. Recent workshop artists include:

• Jenny Pengilly
• Roshni Bhagotra
• Sadie Edginton
• Chris Alton
• Jessica Jordon-Wrench
• Kara Chin
• Xu & Ming
• Matt & Fiona
• Sarah Hayward
• Amy Leung
• Mai Omer
• Angelica Teuta
• Elizabeth Oniri
• Poppy Moroney
• Nicole Morris


From June 2019 onwards, each Sunday, excluding the last Sunday of the month, our new artist-designed Play Space transforms the studio into a fun and interactive environment for young children and their parents or guardians to explore from 2-4pm.

Families are supported to use the space by our Art & Play Team. Sessions are self-directed and open to all but cater specifically towards children aged 0-5 years.

Our current Play Space commission has been designed by artist Judith Brocklehurst. Click here for more information about the project.

Please note that the South London Gallery offers free, drop-in family activities every Sunday with the exception of Easter Sunday, Christmas and New Year.

Supported by Southwark Council’s Neighbourhoods Fund, Tesco Bags of Help and the Co-op Local Community Fund. Children & Families programme supported by Mercedes Zobel.
