Chutney Preserves is a juxtaposition of workplace with exhibition stage, or perhaps more coherently, experimental lab with ceremonial site.
Chutney Preserves was founded in 2005 by artists Captain Marq Kearey and Captain Sarah Sparkes
We are the Chutney Preserves and we welcome you into our fold.

CHUTNEY PRESERVES SEVEN - call for artists

Call out for artists to participate in
‘Chutney Preserves SEVEN’ at Camberwell Arts Festival
Sunday June 23rd   12 – 7.30pm, Camberwell Green

Chutney Preserves raises its slimy head for the seventh magnificent time; SEVEN is the magic number and our theme this year! 
Chutney Preserves welcome your proposals for performance, participatory actions, temporary art works, rarey side-shows, interactive double-dealings and other interventions.
There will be small marquee and tables available on request.  You are encouraged to bring your own tent (if you have one) to pitch for the day on Camberwell Green to act as your HQ or to make-over in a suitable fashion.
The event will be publicised and archived as part of Camberwell Arts Festival and through the Chutney Preserves website. There will be flyer, copies of which can be posted to participating artists on request.  You will be joining the Chutney family and will be looked after - kept fed and watered - with cheese and chutney sandwiches and beer. The joy of Chutney will stay with you always.

See here  examples from previous Chutney events:

Deadline for submissions: May 12th
Send your proposals to:  
with the subject - Chutney SEVEN

Are you the seventh son of a seventh son with seven sisters, seven years bad luck and seven league boots who met a man going to St. Ives with seven wives?
Seven is a magic number, seven is a secret number, seven is a sacred number, seven is a virtuous number, but is seven your lucky number?
Sail the seven seas to see the Seven Wonders of the World; commit Seven Deadly Sins and ride the Seven Colours of the Rainbow to Seventh Heaven;  deliver Seven Sermons to the Dead and then light a Seven Day Candle to cure your Seven Year Itch.

On the seventh day of the week – Sunday – come to Camberwell Green for ‘Chutney Preserves SEVEN’
