Next month's Elefest Festival will see the Hotel Elephant Gallery open up its new premises at the heart of Southwark's Heygate Estate.

The gallery will be bringing together a collection of work by different artists at its new venue, based in the old surgery on Brandon Street.

Organisers said the 6 October event would present “an insight into the wealth of creativity and talent within the local area, as well highlight the Elephant as a place of interest and inspiration”.

It runs from 12pm and features the work of artists Eva Sajovic, Eleanor Shipman, Emile Kelly, Kamala Katbamna, Rebecca Davies, and Reuben Powell.

There will also be a robotic fire-breathing dragon.
