Lambeth, SE11

The Space

Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall (BGV) is a unique and atmospheric venue housed in the former Lambeth Ragged School opened in 1851. Built on Victorian philanthropy, the school has been transformed into a stunning contemporary art gallery and versatile blank canvas event space.

BGV has three very individual event spaces and a courtyard garden that capture the best of London design. Our distinct spaces can be hired out separately, in combination or as a whole. We are available to hire for corporate events, photo-shoots, filming, conferences, wedding receptions and private parties.

Located in Central London we are situated close to excellent transport links and have several on-site parking spaces for clients.

The Upper Space

With its 7 metre high white walls, original stepped wooden floor and large arched windows, the Upper Space is a spectacular room full of natural light. This large, impressive space is ideal for ceremonies, conferences, product launches and corporate hospitality.

Facilities include a lighting rig with spots, up lighting and a projection balcony with broadband capability. The whole space is fitted with underfloor heating and has single and 3 phase electricity.

Capacity: Standing:150 / Seated:100 / Area:1600 sq ft

The Lower Space

Perfect for smaller and more intimate events such as dinners, meetings and workshops. The Lower Space has white walls, an original Yorkstone floor, cast iron pillars and large windows providing excellent natural light. 

The Lower Space can be hired on its own but is included in any hire as this is where the toilets are located: x2 Gents, x2 Ladies and x1 Wheelchair access. Facilities include down-light spotlights with dimmers and 6 double sockets.

Capacity: Standing:150 / Seated:100 / Area:1300 sq ft

The Arch Space

An atmospheric space suitable for large events, the Arch Space has exposed brick walls, a state-of-the-art invisible infrared heating system and sprung wooden floor (painted grey). Its urban aesthetic complements the period features of the Upper and Lower Spaces and its stunning, cavernous capacity makes it ideal for product launches, fashion shows, distinctive sit-down dinners and film shoots.

Facilities include single and 3 phase electricity.

Capacity: Standing:500 / Seated:400 / Area:3150 sq ft

The Courtyard Garden

The secluded, plant-filled Courtyard Garden is an oasis from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding area. Ideal for summer parties, receptions and al-fresco events, this tranquil space is available to hire in conjunction with any of the 3 spaces.

Along with benches we have a large retractable all-weather canopy. It is possible to erect a marquee or park food trucks in this space.
