At Southwark Cathedral, we are delighted to display the work of local artists, students and school children

We have two spaces for exhibitions: the Refectory and Lancelot’s Link. Throughout the year our Refectory hosts a number of popular 2D exhibitions by artists and we host a number of 3D exhibitions in Lancelot’s Link.

You can see present and forthcoming exhibitions on the menu to the left, including our online exhibitions which explore the rich history of the Cathedral.

Exhibiting Work

All requests for exhibiting work are to be submitted to the Cathedral's Hanging Committee.  For further information please contact Christopher Owens by email 

The Committee's policy is to concentrate on works by local artists, members of the congregation and the Cathedral's schools and/or subject matter which relates to the Cathedral and its neighbourhood although this is not exclusive.

In view of the Chapter's policy of maintaining the quiet and prayerfulness of the building, exhibitions are not normally held within the Cathedral.
