If we meet before hand in the Portrait Cafe to get to know each other and give the rush hour people and concert goers a chance to have their coffee first...we can then wander round at leisure - hopefully.

So, 18.30 meetup in the Portrait Gallery for the live jazz and 19.30 go into the Portrait Gallery to experience the Salon de Lumière and surround yourself with works in light as contemporary artists pay homage to Man Ray, the original ‘Master of Light’. Be engulfed by Chris Levine’s incandescent, bespoke light installation and discuss Susan Aldworth’s striking lenticular prints, which capture flashes of light in the brain, with the artist herself.

The Gallery website states that we will take inspiration from Man Ray’s iconic fashion images and experiment with light and shade in drawing workshops. Discover the new technologies which shed light on historic portraits with curator Charlotte Bolland. Find out about innovators and masters of light within the Collection on a spotlight tour, strike a pose for a surreal group photo shoot or simply relax at the bar and enjoy a live 1920s inspired jazz performance.

Afterwards from 20.30 we can meet at the NOTES COFFEE AND WINE CAFE for further socialising and discussions. It is accross the road at 31 St. Martins Lane, Trafalgar Square
