Let your senses follow Henri Matisse’s lead as you take a journey through food and classical music. You’ll taste the Côte d‘Azur, and feel the warm summer breeze from the French Riviera.

Join us for a culinary journey through the flavours on the French Riviera, from Saint-Tropez to Cannes. Taste your way along the Mediterranean coast with tapas platters, while being entertained with classical music.

Leave the hustle and bustle of London behind and relax, with a selection of rosé wines to taste before stepping into the studio of Matisse, brimming with the artist’s treasured objects. Focusing exclusively on their important role in his work for the first time, we will reveal how this eclectic collection took on new life in his transcendent art.

To mark the experience, we’ll add your name to our online supporters’ mural – giving you the chance to share how art, and the Royal Academy, has made a mark on you.

Tickets to this event include a donation to support the redevelopment of the Royal Academy. For nearly 250 years, the RA has been a place where art is made, exhibited and debated. Thank you for supporting the future of the Royal Academy by participating in this event.

Booking is essential for this event; if you wish to bring a guest please book one ticket for each person.
