Event description

Description

We are delighted to invite you to join us in a very special evening reception to showcase the galleries and event spaces within our beautiful Grade II* listed landmark building, available to hire for events.

Guests will be welcomed with an aperitif from Alastair Currie Events and a variety of canapes served by the wonderful Papadeli, best known for their artisan Mediterranean cookery.

Following an introduction from our Director, Alison Bevan, you will have a chance to see the summer exhibition, Air: Visualising the Invisible in British Art, including works by Turner, Constable and Lowry.

The evening will give guests the opportunity to see our unique galleries after hours, looking as they would for a seated dinner or evening reception and talk to us about your event. The event is also an opportunity to find out more about forthcoming exhibitions and the benefits you would receive as a sponsor of The RWA.

Download our Venue Hire Brochure or visit the Venue Hire page on our website to find out more.

If you are not able to attend the event, please do pass the invitation onto to one of your colleagues.
