'The Garden Museum explores and celebrates British gardens and gardening through its collection, temporary exhibitions, events and garden. Visitors will also see a permanent display of paintings, tools, ephemera and historic artefacts: a glimpse into the uniquely British love affair with gardens. Whether you are an enthusiastic amateur gardener, more of a specialist or someone with a passion for museums, history or architecture, the Museum has something for you.'

'Established in 1994, Gasworks is a non-profit contemporary visual art organisation working at the intersection between UK and international practices and debates. We provide studios for London-based artists; commission emerging UK-based and international artists to present their first major exhibitions in the UK; and develop a highly-respected international residencies programme, which offers rare opportunities for international artists to research and develop new work in London. All programmes are accompanied by events and participatory workshops that engage audiences directly with artists and their work.'

'The SCRSS organises a regular programme of lectures, film shows, exhibitions, seminars and other events at its premises in London ... Events are open to both SCRSS members and non-members, unless otherwise stated ... The SCRSS was founded in 1924 as the Society for Cultural Relations between the Peoples of the British Commonwealth and the USSR, following the establishment of diplomatic relations between Great Britain and the new Soviet state. It has continued its work uninterrupted until the present day. The Society's founding members were a group of key British and Soviet artists and intellectuals of the day, including EM Forster, Julian Huxley, Maynard Keynes, Bertrand Russell, Sybil Thorndyke, Alexei Tolstoy, Virginia Woolf and Konstantin Yuon.'

'Founded in 1910 in Tulse Hill, the South London Botanical Institute has a beautiful botanical garden and runs a wide range of courses, workshops, school visits and events for all ages ... The Institute has a diverse membership, including amateur and professional botanists, gardeners, artists, photographers, ecologists, writers, campaigners and others who have an urge to learn more about plants.'

'We’re the largest arts centre in the UK and one of the nation's top five visitor attractions. We seek out the world’s most exciting artists, from household names to fresh new talent, and give them space to showcase their best work ... Through music, performance, art and events, we take you out of the everyday, every day.'
