For one month - self-guided tour of Fairbairn Hall on Saturdays in June.

Fairbairn Hall is a Grade II Listed Heritage building in Newham. It was founded by the University of Oxford during the Settlement Movement in East London (1886-1986), whereby the privileged built residences in poor neighbourhoods where they lived amongst locals to integrate with them, as a means of service and to improve living conditions.

During the 1970s, Fairbairn Hall was all but abandoned, then became home to the infamous Fairbairn Boxing Club. In the 1980s, the historic Boy’s Club was converted into residential units converting its former canteen, Chapel, theatre, library, gymnasium, ping pong rooms into 29 homes in Newham.

View the exhibition of photos, artefacts, design objects and ephemera from the Newham Archives with site specific artworks, performances, and other architectural interventions by Fairbairn Hall artists-in-residence.

The building is open 12-4pm for self-guided tours.
