Enjoy over 1,200 works showcasing everything from watercolour paintings to videos and photography in this exclusive Summer Exhibition evening private view for Friends. In the galleries, Friends will enjoy summer hits from a DJs and a pop-up Sipsmith gin bar, with Summer Cup, beer and wine available to purchase all evening.

In the courtyard, Friends can purchase tea party hampers, including classic savouries, strawberries and cream. The Solid Steel band will perform throughout the evening in the Academy’s courtyard.
