Experience the RA galleries like never before as we open our doors around the clock for a full 56 hours.

Please note that online booking for advance tickets is no longer available, due to the level of demand. A limited number of tickets are available at the ticket office, but you may have to queue at busy times.

For the first time in the RA’s 247-year history, we are offering the opportunity to see the Ai Weiwei exhibition at any time from 10am on Friday 11 December to 6pm on Sunday 13 December.

Encounter surreal performances, gallery talks and hands-on activities throughout the night, as well as a chance to immerse yourself in Ai Weiwei’s monumental and deeply powerful work after hours.
