It may surprise you to know:

– we are a registered charity (no.1046852)

– as an independent art space receiving no regular local or national financial support, we have to raise all our own income and pay our own bills, maintain our buildings and stay open

– we currently run 6 exhibitions and numerous events each year and need to raise all the funds to commission these new works

– the gallery was founded by artists, and relies on the goodwill of artist volunteers giving over 5,000 hours a year

– we have running costs of around £400 each day.


We urgently need your help to keep Beaconsfield open.

As this autonomous art space approaches its quartercentury we now need your support more than ever to survive and collectively we can make this happen.

This is an opportunity to support Beaconsfield, no matter how small a donation you can afford. And to make a stand too – before much of what we all value and love is eroded away.

Founded as an educational charity by artists in 1994 with the desire to fill a niche between the institution, the commercial and ‘alternative’, BGV remains a unique, non-profit, artist-led entity, placing equal emphasis on audiences and artists.

Beaconsfield’s reputation rests on the staging of an influential programme of exhibitions, residencies, limited editions and discursive events with commissions (beacons) in a range of art mediums (field).

The organisation’s function as a primary research vehicle is international and particularly notable for pioneering developments in time-based, political and sound art as well as curatorial practice. So we need to continue to raise our core costs (such as rent, rates, heat & light) to realise BGV’s full potential as a self-sufficient, critically engaged locus operating beyond the mainstream.

We already rely upon your moral support and now need your practical support to stay open.


A regular gift would be a special help to us

If you can help, please make a one-off or regular donation online.  Alternatively, you can contact Lucy on for information on other ways to donate.

a truly independent, streamlined resource for the development and

presentation of contemporary art.
