NOT ANOTHER FEEDBACK SURVEY ?

Yes it is, but if you have enjoyed visiting us recently and do have a few minutes spare, please help us by completing our ONLINE SURVEY kindly designed for us by Georgie Anderson. No doubt you’ve heard it all before, but this feedback does guide future management decisions, and may be a crucial factor in obtaining significant funding for us to help improve the facilities here at Creek.


AWARDS

We were #KentCreativeAwards finalists in ‘Cultural Venue’ + ‘Arts Organisation’ Categories last year.

In 2015 our Gallery Kitchen Cafe received a ‘Kent Life and Kent on Sunday Food & Drink Awards 2015‘ ‘Highly Commended’ for ‘Cafe of the Year’. In October 2016 at the ‘Kent Life and Kent on Sunday Food & Drink Awards 2016‘ (), the GKC was a top three Finalist in both ‘Cafe of the Year’ and ‘Customer Service of the Year’ categories, and shortlisted again for ‘Customer Service of the Year’ in 2017.

On Tuesday 21st November 2017 we received the exciting news that Lorraine and her team have won a Gold Award in the FreeFrom Eating Out Awards for 2017! Congratulations to the Cafe team once again for all their hard work this year!

THE LOWER GALLERY IS AVAILABLE TO HIRE… Call 01795 535515 (additional space in development)

If you are interested in exhibiting in the Lower Gallery currently the cost is £160 per week (+ 20% sales commission), with plenty of gaps in the calendar! Please note there are two rooms: the main room as shown in the photos, and the second, which currently still suffers water intrusion, but is uniquely atmospheric and includes an amazing 30m tunnel (ideal for unusual installations). The Lower Gallery is favoured by those exhibitors wishing for a dedicated space (with higher ceiling in the main room), more flexible layout, and peaceful atmosphere in contrast with the busy Upper Gallery.
