5 November 2020 Update 

Following the latest Government announcement, Lauderdale House will be closed to the public from Thursday 5 November until Thursday 3 December. 

The cafe at Lauderdale House is open for takeaway only. Check cafe opening times here

The galleries remain closed to the general public for the time-being. However, we are hiring them out for permitted activities such as funerals, recording, filming, rehearsing, meetings and training. 

We are also able to offer one to one socially distanced tours for anyone looking to hire the House for weddings, parties and other events later in the year or in 2021.

While we are closed to the public, we have been finding alternative ways to support all who use the House. Do have a look at the Lockdown Exhibitions and Lockdown music sections in the What's On section for links to YouTube recordings of interviews with artists and photographers, concerts and even a behind the scenes tour of the House. 

We are also delighted that a grant from the local Lady Gould's Charity has enabled us to 'reactivate' our outreach programme and we have been running our youth group online as well as supporting local schools.

Lauderdale House is a charity that aims to brings arts and education to all whilst preserving a truly unique heritage space. We have no core funding and all of our income is dependent on the House being open – ticket sales, class enrolments and hire fees for weddings, parties and other social events. 

We understand that all of our audience members have completely different financial circumstances and that now is an uncertain time for us all.  However, if you feel there is anything you can donate to our charitable work at this time please do support us. If you didn’t know that we were a charity and you want to find out more, please take a look at our community section.  

If you need to contact the Lauderdale House team, please email enquiries@lauderdale.org.uk .  You can also call 020 8348 8716, but please be aware we are working with a reduced staff, so there is not always someone to answer. You are welcome to leave a message and we’ll get back to you as quickly as possible. 
In the meantime, follow the Government advice and stay safe.
