The Belgravia Gallery

The Belgravia Gallery is run by mother and daughter team Anna Hunter and Laura Walford and can be found on Maddox Street, in the very heart of Mayfair. It’s a real gem, and very popular with locals and out-of-towners alike. The gallery focuses on being professional, inviting and approachable, with a strong emphasis on raising funds for The Sebastian Hunter Memorial Trust, a charity very close to the owners’ hearts.

Founded in 2002 in memory of Anna Hunter’s son Sebastian, it was important for the family to ensure that funds raised in his memory would make a true difference and so it was decided that providing constant support to underprivilleged communities in India would help and that investing in education was key to their efforts.

There have been numerous projects funded and supported by Belgravia Gallery, with the aim of inspiring education, leadership and creativity in some of the most deprived areas of Tamil Nadu in southern India. The rural poor in this region need a lot of support as they are very vulnerable and the education and the educational projects have made a real difference to individual lives.

Why not go along and take a look at the latest exhibition – a collaborative venture between the gallery and the Wine Workshop and Kitchen 28-50. Artists featured include Lincoln Seligman, Carl Laubin and David Eley.
