Thanks to funding from the Arts Council, the space at the Babylon Gallery on Ely’s Waterside has been re-developed.

The gallery officially launches this weekend and a number of events are lined up to celebrate.

Caroline Cawley, director, said: “We’re re-launching our venue at the Babylon making it a more flexible, vibrant space not only for displaying artwork but as a micro multi-purpose venue.”

An evening with Boo Hewerdine will take place on Friday 9, before a free drop-in event hosted by Re-imagine on Sunday 11 October from midday to 4pm.
