Proceeds support Beaconsfield Commissions @ a streamlined resource for the development and presentation of contemporary art.
Inside spaces are in our very well-ventilated Lower Gallery. Outside courtyard spaces are under cover with heaters or blankets.
Beer, wine, soft drinks and vegetarian sharing platters will also be served.
We’ve named the Coffee Machine!
Thanks to the Cockayne Foundation and the Cultural Recovery Fund we have been able work constructively in lockdown to refurbish the kitchen, acquire a top quality La Marzocca coffee machine and recruit a new team.
We want to thank everyone who submitted a name for the Coffee Machine!
We received some fantastic propositions and we are thrilled to introduce you to Bambi!
‘The Marzocca coffee machine was invented in Florence in 1927 by the brothers Giovanni and Bruno Bambi. I suggest calling the new machine Beaconsfield Bambi.’.

About The Ragged Canteen at Beaconsfield
Beaconsfield opened The Ragged Canteen in 2008 to reflect our passion for ethically-sourced, seasonal food and excellent coffee. We offer a vegetarian menu with gluten-free and vegan options, hand-made cakes with fair-trade, organic coffee supplied by local roasteries throughout gallery opening hours.
The kitchen is located in the Lower Gallery space, at the heart of the historic Lambeth Ragged School building tended by Beaconsfield and we have plenty of outdoor seating.
As a pioneer of the emerging Vauxhall cultural quarter, we offer an inspirational environment with a continuous programme of progressive art, free Wi-fi and an outdoor terrace for sunny days, a canopy for rain and outdoor heaters when chilly.
