This event is led by experienced audio describer Harry Baxter. Refreshments are included and volunteer support is provided.

Gauguin and the Impressionists: Masterpieces from the Ordrupgaard Collection brings together over 60 works of art from painters such as Manet, Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Morisot and Degas–many of which have never been seen in the UK.
