More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

VULPES VULPES exhibition - Heliotrope 12-27 June 2010

Heliotrope is an exhibition where artists are invited to deface, work into, and manipulate current political propaganda from Labour, Conservative and the Liberal Democrat party promotional material and billboard posters used during the 2010 general election. The resulting show will display these amended posters as well as topical material from the duration of the election. The consequent satirical archive will infer no intentional p! olitical leaning other than the collective voice of the work itself.


Vulpes Vulpes is an artist run gallery and project space in Hackney.


NOTE from Beecholme sec. – VULPUS VULPUS is one of the art galleries in the Old Tram Depot site at 38-40 Upper Clapton road, even though the gallery itself and entrance is at the side in Prout Road.
Read about the Old Tram Depot proposed re-development
and the idea to make it all an Arts & Crafts trust
