There is currently no exhibition in this Gallery.

Next up from Tuesday 3rd to Sunday 15th July all four highly-creative members of the Dickinson family based at Sandhurst Farm Forge will be presenting ‘Sandhurst Farm: Family Space’ – a joint multi-disciplined exhibition which will include:

  • Hand-forged sculptural metalwork (Charles),
  • Colourful & quirky ceramic and textile pieces (Isabel),
  • Woodturning incorporating found materials (William),
  • 3D Mixed-media, Batik & stitched textiles (Kate).


    Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, Faversham Technology & Art Faculty Exhibition ‘A Collection of Art & Product Design work from Year 13 students’ currently occupies this Gallery (with external moderation in progress). This year it is Open to the Public for one day only, and unusually for us that’s a MONDAY (10am – 4pm, 25th June). Please note: access to the show will be from the back entrance on Belvedere Road (see Floor Plans, Lower Ground Floor (LHS)). Private View for parents/family is tonight 6-8pm (22nd June).


    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.
