Event description

Description

If you can't make it to our Friday Lates, the Pavilion and Pavilion Bar are open throughout the week and weekend - check out the opening times here and join us for a drink!


Pack your suitcase – in celebration of Sargent: The Watercolours, we’re taking you on a journey from Tuscany to Turkey.

Sargent’s travels will be brought to life through Art Macabre’s immersive drawing salons, where costumed models will evoke Sargent’s international travels with theatricality and curiosity. Expect everything from Venetian tableaux to alpine wilderness. All levels of experience welcome, just pick your material of choice and join us outside.

Award-winning storyteller Giles Abbott will also be roaming the Gallery gardens telling tales of adventure and explorations. Giles will use his rich and poetic voice to make pictures in your mind inspired by the watercolours of John Singer Sargent - where Sargent uses a brush, Giles will use stories! Giles is the Storyteller in Residence at the Last Tuesday Society, has toured internationally and is his work is regularly featured on TV and radio.


You'll also have the chance to travel the world from the comfort of your armchair, as we host a stall of featuring some of the best independent travel magazines around. Browse and buy from titles including Tiny Atlas Quarterly, Lodestars Anthology, Sidetracked, Cartography and more.


PLEASE NOTE

Lates activities and entry to the Permanent Collection are free, but standard admission prices apply to the Sargent: The Watercolours exhibition. Tickets can be purchased in advance here. We highly recommend booking the exhibition in advance as spaces are strictly limited and may sell out for time slots during the Late.
