Home is Where the Art Is, at Dorchester Court

The Dorchester Court community is proud to present the inaugural Dorchester Court Art Exhibition - 'Home is where the Art is'.

You are cordially invited to visit our private 2-day art exhibition, which showcases work done entirely by the artistic community living in the beautiful – if dilapidated - Dorchester Court estate in Herne Hill.

Entry is free.

Usually, we have a summer party at this time of year, featuring live music performed by residents and friends with hundreds attending, with homemade food and BYO drinks.

The pandemic has made that impossible, so instead, we are showing the work of ‘artists in residence’ here in the communal spaces - the lobbies and landings of these stunning art deco blocks - which were designed and built to be enjoyed and shared by the community.

Much of the work is for sale: prices will be marked and sales will be made directly with the artists. You can also talk to the attendants in each block.

The exhibition runs on Saturday July 4th (11-7) and Sunday July 5th (11-6).

All required social distancing measures and tapes will be in place; we are operating a one-way system, hand sanitisers will be available, and antiviral cleaners will be available to the block attendants who will regularly disinfect the stairways and lifts.

Entry is by electronic or paper ticket that you will need to exchange on entry to the site for a visitors badge.

Families and children are especially welcome. You may bring friends with you, up to a total of 8 people – the new lockdown limit - but everyone needs their own ticket for entry.

While you are here you are welcome to wander around the site and admire these neglected but beautiful buildings and stroll the grounds.

You are welcome to picnic on the lawns; no animals please and please take away any rubbish or put it in the bins behind the blocks.

Thank you and please enjoy yourselves!

Getting Here: Parking is free within the court: please use the side roads to the estate and not the central area.

Buses 68 and 468 halt outside at Frankfurt Road stop.
