The grand opening of our summer show, entitled Glory Hole. Taking inspiration from the era that the building was erected, and the people of that time, the exhibition  revolved around Victorian London. From the Dickensian Gin palaces to the squalor of East end lifestyle, during the turn of the century’s’ equivalent to our recession struck times.

“perfectly dazzling when contrasted with the darkness and dirt we have just left…” Charles Dickens.
