A new exhibition space opened at Havering's Fairkytes Arts Centre in February, to showcase exhibitions from local artists and crafts people, as well as providing performance and teaching space.

Fry’s Gallery opened on 26 February, showcasing an exhibition, Still Life by Steve Cook, which will run to 16 March.

The gallery was named after a former owner of the main Grade-II listed Fairkytes building, Joseph Fry (1809-1896), son of the famous prison reformer, Elizabeth Fry.

Melvin Wallace, cabinet member for culture and community engagement, said: "The Fry Gallery is a valuable new exhibition space for local residents and visitors to experience the culture of Havering.

"I am very proud that we have this new gallery in the borough and encourage residents to use this space to showcase their talents."
