The Dissenters' Gallery, Kensal Green Cemetery

The Dissenters' Gallery //
Kensal Green Cemetery // Ladbroke Grove, London W10




The Dissenters' Gallery and Dissenter's Chapel, at the south-eastern corner of Kensal Green Cemetery, are available separately or together for hire by the week or month.

With a door directly onto Ladbroke Grove and a separate gate into the cemetery, the Gallery and Chapel function as a discrete space, suitable for exhibitions, installations, lectures, readings, meetings, and activities sympathetic to this unique site.

The asymmetrical Dissenters' Gallery features five walls suitable for hanging, adjustable spot lighting and natural light from a picture window at the entrance.

The adjacent Dissenters' Chapel, decorated to designs by Owen Jones, includes fixed and moveable seating, a two-tier lectern and pulpit, and covered portico overlooking the Dissenters' Section of Kensal Green Cemetery. The chapel comfortably accommodates 30 chairs, with seating for at least ten people in each pew.

The space also includes shared use of a small storage room, kitchen and accessible unisex toilet. As the Chapel is regularly in use for funerals, it is generally only available for other events and activities on on evenings and weekends.

Potential exhibitors are asked to present a representative sample of the work to be exhibited in advance. Kensal Green is a working cemetery within a diverse community, so we ask that the use of the Gallery and Chapel respect the needs of other visitors and the General Cemetery Company.

Exhibitors are also expected to accommodate a permanent display of the Friends' publications and merchandise. and the Friends' weekly cemetery tours, that conclude at the Gallery around 16:00 each Sunday.

Exhibitors are expected to staff the Gallery during their own opening hours, advertise the exhibition and produce the publicity materials. Wherever possible, the Friends of Kensal Green Cemetery will publicize exhibitions and related events through the Friends' Magazine, Web site and e-mail distribution lists. Exhibitors are expected to keep the gallery clean, tidy and secure, and to respect the fabric of this Grade II* Listed building.
