Introducing The Glades Local Showcase

Local Showcase logo

If you like to support local artists and makers, you’ll love The Glades Local Showcase. We’re bringing a fantastic selection of independent creatives to The Glades, and you can browse and buy their work throughout the centre.

The Local Showcase is curated by South East London artist Emma Jane Semmens, whose own pop-up store has been a huge hit at The Glades.

Mark Haynes, Centre Director, explains the new project: “The Glades is in such a great location, with wonderful talent on its doorstep in Kent and London. So it’s only right to bring some of those talented creators into The Glades, where people can be inspired by their work while supporting these independent makers directly.”

Look for the Local Showcase throughout The Glades, with locations currently on the Upper Mall next to Zara, and in Regents Arcade. The displays will be changing over the months, so make sure you check back to see new talent!

If you’re an independent maker or creative with an online store, and would like to be considered for the next Showcase, please get in touch at
