Thursday Late at The National Portrait Gallery (22nd May)

Join us for a Thursday-Late-Opening at The National Portrait Gallery located near Trafalgar Square. The National Portrait Gallery houses the world's largest collection of personalities and faces, from the late Middle Ages to the present day. The gallery has free entry and is open until 9pm on our visit. We will meet outside the main entrance on St Martin's Place at 7:30 pm (I will have a Meetup sign). 

Please note that this is a general visit to the permanent exhibitions rather than a guided tour. Once inside the Gallery, members can either stay with our group or explore the exhibits by themselves.

At 8.45pm we will meet once again outside the main entrance and then members have the option of joining us at a nearby pub/bar for a chat over a few drinks.

In the meantime, if you have any queries then please do not hesitate to contact us by email through this website. Click on my photo (Martyn) and just choose the option to send an email.

    I had to leave early so I'm sorry everyone to have missed drinks at the Shades. NPG is such a large # I stuck to Tudor and Elizabethan - but glad I did bc I found my favourite thought-to-be Shakespeare portrait http://www.npg.org.uk/collections/search/portrait/mw11574/William-Shakespeare?LinkID=mp04051&search=sas&sText=shakespeare&OConly=true&role=sit&rNo=0

    Hi Folks, as the waiting list has dropped off to just a few people, I've now invited everyone along. I couldn't do this earlier as there were too many people on the waiting list. I realise it's frustrating when you get last minute notice. However, members who drop out last minute are just a fact of life. All we can do is just ensure we remove members who consistently no-show or continually drop out last minute. Kind Regards, Martyn.

      We usually split into smaller groups but some of us can take larger groups if they don't know the gallery or others.

    I'm so sorry for the almost last minute notice but I've had to change my rsvp as I'm not well. I really hope my place is taken.

    I love photography and, having always been fascinated by the female portraits of Leonardo Da Vinci, I recently started sketching. I think tonight will be inspirational and possibly spark my creativity ;)
