Welcome to New House Art Space & Davies-Gilder Gallery. The community art space was originally earmarked for demolition; but in late 2021 the team behind The Boileroom transformed the building to accommodate twenty artist studios; a reception area that’s now home to the delectable Koja Coffee shop; and the Davies-Gilder gallery and event space.
Our ethos is to create an inspiring & inclusive space for all to be creative and grow their artistic disciplines and businesses.
Come and be a part of our progressive creative community.
The New House Team
The performing arts technology studio offers outstanding music facilities.
The building has two exceptional recording studios and a TV studio.
West Horsley Place is a Grade I listed mediaeval manor house and estate of great beauty and historic significance. The manor house dates from 1425, though there has been a building on site since Saxon times. The house is currently on Historic England’s Heritage At Risk Register and along with the outbuildings is in a very bad state of repair.
The Mary Roxburghe Trust aims to restore the house, gardens, 380-acre estate and 8 Grade II listed outbuildings to create a vibrant centre for the performing and visual arts and the teaching of crafts. After 1000 years of private ownership West Horsley Place will be reborn as a place for everyone to enjoy, whether as a visitor to the house or garden or as a student learning a new craft. There is a great history to be discovered, and a new role for this grand old house to play in its community.

Located in a building over 150 years old, Cranleigh Arts Centre is steeped in history. Having been a school for over a century, the venue reopened in 1985 as a full time arts centre, and since then it has gone from strength to strength.
Independently run, with a small core team helped by volunteers, Cranleigh Arts Centre punches considerably above its weight with acts like Ross Noble, Jo Brand, Reginald D Hunter & Eric Clapton often gracing the stage!
For a wealth of artistic events and exhibitions, you know where to go…

This magnificent building was constructed in the 1880s as the church of St Alban The Martyr. Originally designed for a congregation of 1200, by the 1970s it was declared redundant and was neglected for many years.
A passionate campaign led by local people eventually succeeded in saving it from demolition and in 1995 it became the home of a new community art centre – the Landmark Arts Centre.

The Riverhouse Barn Arts Centre celebrated its 25th Anniversary in 2014. It started life as an ordinary 18th century barn. By the mid 1980’s it had fallen into poor repair, but was used by Elmbridge Borough Council as a store for parks maintenance equipment.
In 1985, an enlightened group of local residents recognised the building’s potential as a much needed arts centre for the Walton community. Establishing the Walton-on-Thames Community Trust to manage the process, a plan was hatched to acquire and develop the building, and secure the funding. Elmbridge itself played a major part in realising the dream by leasing the building on a peppercorn rent to the Trust.
The design of the Riverhouse Barn offers a wide range of spaces that can be easily adapted to meet most requirements for theatrical, musical and business events, as well as exhibitions. Our on-site catering from the Riverhouse Kitchen & Bar, outside spaces and ample parking ensure that the needs of everyone, including the disabled, are catered for.
