Artwork in Hall Place Gardens

Centrepieces has entered into an exciting new partnership with Hall Place, and the Council will fund some temporary artwork to be created by Centrepieces’ artists in the gardens at Hall Place. 12 proposals have now been agreed, encompassing a wide range of ideas and media. See the Workshops and Activities page for more details.

Bexley’s London Borough of Culture bid

Bexley is bidding to become one of the first London Boroughs of Culture. There was a special event to launch the bid on Sunday 1st October at Hall Place. Centrepieces played a role in this event along with other local arts organisations. The Lodge was open to the public so that everyone could see what we do. Christie led a special workshop Naming on stones (part of the Never Forget sculpture).This involved putting the names of all local veterans who died in WW1 onto stones, which will form part of the Centrepieces’ Art in Hall Gardens sculpture to be installed on Remembrance Sunday in November.
