Friends excursions: The Garrick Club
Friends visit the Garrick Club, home to the largest and most significant collection of British theatrical works of art in the world.
Founded in 1831, the Garrick Club was set up by a diverse group of founding members that included peers of the realm as well as writers, actors, musicians and publishers. They set up the club with the aim of combining the traditions of an 18th century literary society with a more contemporary dining and social club.
Named after the pioneering 18th-century actor David Garrick, the Garrick showcases over 1000 paintings, drawings and sculptures including works by Johan Zoffany RA, Thomas Lawrence PRA and John Everett Millais PRA. We are privileged to be taken on this special tour of the club by theatre historian, Frances Hughes.
Dress code applies.
This event will also take place on 19 June 2018.
