This summer sees a myriad of events taking place on the former St Clement's Hospital site. The "pop-up" ST CLEMENT'S SOCIAL CLUB launches this Friday 19th July (6-11 PM) and will be the first time the grounds have been open to the public since it was built as a workhouse in 1848.

A varied program of events runs until 18th August and includes films, poetry and theatre: some themed around mental health issues, whilst others make the most of this atmospheric site.

The SHUFFLE FESTIVAL hosted by the St Clements Social Club and curated by Danny Boyle runs from the 8-18th August and includes films such as 'Slumdog Millionaire','Attack the Block', 'Shallow Grave', 'The Long Good Friday' and Julien Temple's 'London: A Modern Babylon'.
