What we're about

Do you love art and art galleries? Would you like to know more about art made in the past and the art made today? Would you like a helping hand with visiting and understanding permanent collections and temporary exhibitions in London?

We are a group of 27 art and art history experts who have recently been dismissed from the our posts as educators at the National Gallery. Between us we have dedicated 567 years of collective experience and expertise, delivering a wide programme of talks, lectures and tours to National Gallery visitors of all ages and backgrounds. The gallery's loss is your gain. For a short period of time we are offering our expertise to you.

Fancy a look at the Renaissance on a Wednesday lunchtime? A tour of the Impressionists on a Friday evening? A Study day on a Sunday? Whether your interests lie in techniques, portraits, costumes, art styles or just good stories in art, one of our experts will take you on an informative, fun and unforgettable tour not only at the National Gallery, but also the Portrait Gallery, Royal Academy, Tate, Wallace, Courtauld, as well as contemporary galleries around town.

Look out for our programme of varied talks and tours and take your pick to suit your tastes.

Most events are £10 ( £25 for a study day) and will go towards our fundraising for our case at an Employment Tribunal in November. By joining our meet up group and attending our meet ups you will also be supporting our cause.
