Southlands Art Centre Events

Covid-19 update

Southlands Arts Centre is temporarily closed until further notice. All our art groups, workshops, exhibitions and events have been cancelled for the time being whilst we follow government guidelines and follow social distancing rules. However, building maintenance works are currently taking place on site so when we are able to open it will be a nice warm welcome back.

In the meantime, we have updated the website, posted some activities online, added work that our users have been doing from home and have signposted some useful resources whilst we continue to follow government guidelines which you can find here. We hope the situation improves so we can welcome you back real soon but nothing is more important right now than keeping yourselves safe.

Be kind, take care of yourselves and each other.

Welcome to the online home of Southlands Arts Centre, Yiewsley and West Drayton’s creative community

With thanks to Hillingdon Council, Southlands Arts Centre has had a external make over during the last few months.  Even though the centre is currently closed due to the Pandemic, we are looking very ship shape, and can’t wait to start welcoming back, some of our groups and classes.

Southlands Arts Centre is based at a wonderful Queen Anne Grade 2 listed building with extensive, beautiful grounds. Most of the grounds is left for wildlife to thrive, while the gardens are well tendered.  All open to the public. It’s also the perfect backdrop for all arts and crafts, and has been the fuel behind many talented artists since the centre was first established in the 1960’s.

The centre is also used by dozens of cultural groups engage in cultural activities across the fine arts, film, drama, music, photography, literature, crafts and design.

We are well known for the high quality of our exhibitions we hold throughout the year. Southlands Arts attract some fantastic artists (Some local) who regularly exhibit their work at the centre.  We are also the home for The West London Photo Exhibition and SouthlandsLIVE, and we hold seasonal Craft Markets.


Southlands has been renowned for its fine arts exhibitions since the 1960s and we continue to be proud to showcase professional and up and coming talent.

Our exhibitions diary includes multi-media exhibitions curated by our teams; guest exhibitors; dynamic photography exhibitions and young people’s art exhibitions.
