Feast your eyes, feed your mind and soul:Late evening at the National Portrait Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London

Laura Mariani

ThePeopleAlchemist Edit: out and about: a night at the museum

For an alternative evening, every Thursday and Friday until 21.00 you can enjoy drawing classes, talks, and discussions, live music, DJs, films, and performance at the National Portrait Gallery beside some amazing art and exhibitions. There is also a pop-up Late Shift Bar in the Main Hall open until 20.30 (Thursdays and Fridays) which is the perfect place to unwind before or after exploring the Gallery (2 for 1 drinks when you present your exhibition ticket). Tonight is the Exhibition Tour: BP Portrait Awards 2017 lead by exhibiting artist Madeline Fenton.
Tomorrow there is a drawing class that is suitable for everyone from complete beginners to accomplished artists. All materials are provided, there is no need to bring anything with you unless you want to work in your own sketchbook or on an iPad so you can go straight from work (or from shopping).
There is also live music, this week with Investec Opera Holland Park with singers from the company performing a collection of lesser and well known Rossini arias.
You can feast your eyes, feed our mind and soul, and have a few drinks: perfect! :-)
