The Bower is a non-profit organisation that receives no revenue funding.


In 2017 we ran a successful crowd funding campaign to renovate the old public toilet block in Brunswick Park. With the support of the Friends of Brunswick Park and the Tenants and Residents Association, we took on the old park-keepers hut and turned it into a cafe.


There are many ways you can continue to support our programme of exhibitions, events and publications and help us maintain our unique buildings in Brunswick Park.

Visit our cafe - The Bower Hut

Every coffee, cake, book or card you buy supports our work.

Located opposite the children's playground in Brunswick Park, our cafe is open Tues-Sun 9am-3pm

and serves a range of teas, coffees, cakes, ice-cream and snacks as well as a specially curated selection of books, cards and gifts.

Purchase from our online shop.

Our online shop has a selection of Publication Studio books available as well as artists editions.
