The South London Gallery (SLG) blends award-winning contemporary architecture with Victorian elegance with venues spanning two sites only 120 metres apart. Located in the heart of Camberwell and Peckham, we are pleased to offer a range of distinctive spaces for private functions, receptions, corporate events, commercial filming and photo shoots. Spaces for hire at our main site are now complemented by stunning new facilities at our new venue at a former Fire Station which opened in September 2018.

As a registered charity, all income generated from venue hire directly supports our education and artistic programmes.
