Come along on Friday 14th March for a late night visit to the National Portrait Gallery!
About the National Portrait Gallery
The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of historically important and famous British people, selected on the basis of the significance of the sitter, not that of the artist.
The collection includes photographs and caricatures as well as paintings, drawings and sculpture. The gallery opened in 1856 and currently houses over 10,000 paintings.
One of the best known portraits is the Chandos portrait, the most famous portrait of William Shakespeare, although there is some uncertainty on whether the portrait actually is of the playwright. Other highlights in the gallery include; self portraits of William Hogarth and Joshua Reynolds and portraits of Queen Elizabeth I, Queen Victoria and the Bronte sisters.
The gallery is open until 9pm and has free entry.
Afterwards we will head to the gallery cafe for a chat over a drink.
If you can't see us outside the station, please call.
