The London Group Open 2023 at Copeland Park & Bussey Building

133 Copeland Rd, London SE15 3SN

Until 26th November


Peckham’s Copeland Park always makes for an interesting wander, with its assortment of trendy bars and eateries and jumble of treasures waiting to be found in its vintage shops and record stores. There’s currently even more to draw the eye, as The London Group Open 2023 is now showing in its gallery space. The 85th exhibition of its kind by the collective features around 200 works by both members and non-members of The London Group, and these are a delightful mixture of painting, sculpture, drawing, print, photography, mixed media, installation, video, sound, digital and performance. Prizes will be awarded on the evening of the 16th, while artists’ talks will take place over the weekend.

Eat at:

Market Peckham

133a Rye Ln, London SE15 4BQ

This multifunctional site is home to a basement club, a rooftop wine bar, and co-working spaces. On the ground floor, you’ll find a food hall that features a smorgasbord of cuisines, from spicy rotisserie chicken and delicate sushi to Balkan small plates bursting with flavour at Eastern Bloc. Recent additions to the Eastern Bloc menu include brunchy bites such as a kielbasa, egg and hash brown bun that’s made with Rinkoff Bakery brioche, smoked sausage, crispy hash brown, baked egg, pomegranate BBQ, rocket and a touch of salsa verde!

Drink in:


133a Rye Ln, London SE15 4BQ

At the front of Market Peckham, overlooking the ever-lively Rye Lane, you’ll find the sultry coffee shop and cocktail bar Jazu. With retro dark wood features and decks that only spin vinyl, it’s just the spot for a laid-back catch up with a side of people-watching. We recommend ordering a round of Cafe Royales (brandy, coffee liqueur, espresso and cream) and cosying up in a corner for a while. There’s also 20% off everything on the ground floor of Market Peckham every Tuesday throughout November and December. Just saying…
