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‘ (
#kentfda), 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.
We are happy to have been shortlisted again this year at the Freefrom Eating Out Awards 2018 in the ‘Cafés & Teashops’ category. Back in November 2017 Lorraine and her team won a Gold Award for that category (FreeFrom Eating Out Awards 2017). Congratulations to the entire Cafe team for all their hard work in 2018!
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.
