Description

Vincent Raven tells the Hillingdon story of Southlands Art Centre, located on the Green in West Drayton. Learn of the site’s history from the 16th century, its rebuild in 1877 and about its new role in the 1960s as an arts centre - thanks to the achievements of Les Nind, a local self-taught artist, who set up Yiewsley and West Drayton Arts Council.

Southlands continues to this day as a venue for local artists to celebrate all forms of creativity, where local communities get together to paint, draw, play music, sing and craft. It's also a platform for artists to showcase their work in bi-annual art and photography exhibitions and through the successful outdoor music event SouthlandsLIVE.
