The Art of Charity

The House of Saint Barnabas at 1 Greek Street is such a beautiful Georgian building, with such a striking light work in its courtyard (see pic), that I hastened to see it and report.  

The building is a private members' club on the outside but inside it's a registered charity, supported by membership fees, and dedicated to breaking the cycle of homelessness among Londoners.

The light work, seen here alongside the Saint Barnabas Chapel, is Portal by the artist Nathaniel Rackowe. It will be on display until the end of June. Please note, all visits must be booked in advance, as must the art tours (see dates below).

If a visit or a tour results in your thinking your income might just stretch to a trendy Soho club membership, that would be a win-win. Your subscription would give hope to those who badly need some hope in their lives. In return you would have a beautiful Georgian house to relax and network in, a garden courtyard where meals are served, and an ever-changing vista of art and sculpture to inspire you.

Tour dates in June: 

Art Tour: Monday 6th June (12:30 - 1:30pm)
Historical Tour: Sunday 19th June (TBC)
