Salon Vert is a private contemporary art gallery founded by Anna Lapshina in 2010. Initially located in Regent’s Park, the gallery has moved to new premises in South Kensington where the traditional residence on London’s Queen’s Gate has been transformed into an ambitious contemporary exhibition space.
Salon Vert promotes up-and-coming and emerging British and international talents through an engaging and diverse programme of thought-provoking group and solo exhibitions, with a focus on multi-media works and installation.
The gallery organizes a minimum of four exhibitions a year, commissions site-specific installations and participates in international art fairs.
Baden-Powell House, colloquially known as B-P House, is a Scouting hostel and conference centre in South Kensington, London, which was built as a tribute to Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting. The house, owned by The Scout Association, hosts a small exhibition relating to Scouting in its current form and a granite statue by Don Potter.The building committee, chaired by Sir Harold Gillett, Lord Mayor of London, purchased the site in 1956, and assigned Ralph Tubbs to design the house in the modern architectural style. The foundation stone was laid in 1959 by World Chief Guide Olave, Lady Baden-Powell, and it was opened in 1961 by Queen Elizabeth II. The largest part of the £400,000 cost was provided by the Scout Movement itself. Over the years, the house has been refurbished several times, so that it now provides modern and affordable lodging for Scouts, Guides, their families and the general public staying in London. The building also hosts conference and event space for hire.HistoryActing on a 1942 initiative by Chief Scout Lord Somers, a formal Baden-Powell House Committee was established by The Scout Association in 1953 under the direction of Sir Harold Gillett, later Lord Mayor of London. The committee's directive was to build a hostel to provide Scouts a place to stay at reasonable cost while visiting London. For this purpose, in 1956 the committee purchased a bombed-out property at the intersection of Cromwell Road and Queen's Gate at a cost of £39,000.

Ognisko Polskie was founded to maintain the cohesion of the free Polish community in exile in the United Kingdom during the Second World War. It has served since to provide a home for Poles to meet and build friendships, as a place where Polish culture and history is kept alive and Polish identity and independence maintained.
In the 21st century Ognisko Polskie aims to continue to be a Centre of Polish life in the United Kingdom, where members can maintain and strengthen their relations with each other and the wider community, promote Polish culture through hosting events, supporting education and arts and providing a place where Polish generosity and warmth can be extended to all.
We are pleased to announce that Ognisko Polskie will develop a national Centre of Excellence to initiate, promote, implement and support the activities in the field of Culture and the Arts.
We will hold exhibitions, meetings, lectures, classes and seminars both alone or with others. We will gather artists, critics, art lovers, representatives of the academic world and of those working in the cultural sphere both in UK and abroad.
Our restaurant reopened and created by Jan Korybut Woroniecki is open since 18th September 2013.

Intermission Outreach provides artistic and educational opportunities for young people through original re-imaginings of Shakespeare productions, specialised Drama Workshops, Panel discussions and dedicated educational events.
We work in Schools, PRUs, YOTs and independently, providing support for young people throughout the UK and engaging them in conversation about the issues that affect them.
Each Outreach show/workshop/event is designed to aid discussion of difficult topics such as knife crime, gang culture and peer pressure. These show that Shakespeare's work, when seen from a modern perspective, is just as relevant and sharp as contemporary theatre.
Intermission Outreach's work has a proven track record of giving young people the life skills and confidence they need to move on into further education, employment or training.
Currently Theatre Partners with The RSC, Intermission has engaged with over 5,000 across the UK.
