Summer Exhibition Preview Party 2019

We invite Friends of the RA to a special private view of the ‘Summer Exhibition 2020’, with music, cocktails and food with a summer twist.

The main event in our Friends calendar is back. Our galleries will once again be filled with music, themed food and drink for a truly unique experience of the Summer Exhibition 2020.

Guests will be greeted with a welcome drink to kickstart the evening. The thousands of artworks on display in our main galleries will be accompanied by a soundtrack of jazz, soul and disco throughout the evening.

Enjoy a pop-up bar in the heart of it all and a wonderful menu of light bites and drinks bursting with summer flavours by Peyton & Byrne, all available to purchase until late.

For a VIP experience, upgrade your ticket and treat yourself to complimentary sparkling wine in our private members’ club. The intimate Academician’s Room is the perfect place to celebrate in style; VIP guests can also enjoy access to a private bar, where our resident mixologist will be serving signature cocktails.

The Summer Exhibition provides established and emerging artists with a unique platform to showcase their work. Famously the world’s largest open submission show, expect a panorama of art in all mediums, a remarkable mixture of emerging artists and household names, and more to see and explore than any other exhibition you’re likely to visit.

This event is open to Friends of the RA, RA250 Friends and RA250 Supporters and members of the Academicians’ Room only.

Please book online or call 020 7300 8090. Members of the Academicians’ Room please call 020 7300 8090 to book your tickets.
