The Lumen Gallery is a unique and exciting exhibition and events space in The Crypt of St John on Bethnal Green.
Our aim is to showcase a variety of artists working with ideas of science, astronomy, light and space.  
Our ongoing aim is to provide a space for discussions between artists, scientists, astronomers, cosmologists and philosophers to discuss ideas about how humanity understands existence. We host a number of events and exhibitions, which can be seen our future events and past events pages.

St John on Bethnal Green is a grade 1 Listed Building designed by Sir John Soane, and was built between 1826 and 1828.
The church is an established arts venue, regularly hosting exhibitions, music events and theatre productions.
The Lumen Crypt Gallery reflects Sir John Soane's attention to detail, boasting unique curved walls and egg shaped pods.
The space is especially effective for dark-space installations and projections, but would support 2-Dimensional works. The Crypt is still the final resting place of 2 people, and we wish to respect their presence in the space.

Our space is suitable for exhibitions, live music events, filming, photography shoots, a pop up shops and catering.
Please do get in touch if you are interested in hiring the space using our Contact Page.
