Welcome to
HAMPSTEAD GARDEN SUBURB
  • Art in Fellowship

    Ruth Waterman has been known for many years as an outstanding violinist, broadcaster, conductor, speaker, and educator and more recently as an exhilarating writer and painter. Although she has been painting on and off for years while taking art classes at Citylit and the Slade, it wasn't until a portrait commission came her way that she let herself spend serious time with paint. This is her first solo exhibition. It's called 'Face to Face'. Some of her work is for sale. It runs at Fellowship House (136A Willifield Way) from the 7th to 30th June and is open any time the building is open and the Eileen Whelan Room is not being used for other purposes. Guaranteed opening times are Tuesday and Friday afternoons from 2.30 to 4.00pm and the evening of June 12th from 6.30 to 9.30pm. There will be a 'Meet the Artist' session on June 19th from 6.30 - 8.00pm (reserve a place by emailing admin@ruthwaterman.com). Any queries: art@fellowshiphouse.co.uk or visit the website at www.fellowshiphouse.co.uk.
  • The Raymond Lowe collection of postcards

    A wonderful collection of Suburb postcards, The Raymond Lowe Collection, has recently been added to the HGS Virtual Museum. These cards tell the story of the Suburb's development from its very beginnings with views of its buildings and street layout. It also traces the history of one particular extended family of early residents and their neighbours and friends, some of whose descendants still live here today.
Hampstead Garden Suburb is located in North West London, England, approximately 7 miles from the centre of London. Founded in 1907 by Dame Henrietta Barnett, it is internationally recognised as one of the finest examples of early twentieth century domestic architecture and town planning, and home to approximately 13,000 people.
