Friends of the RA are invited to join our President, Christopher Le Brun, Mali Morris RA, and fellow Royal Academicians for a special afternoon tea in the Keeper’s House Restaurant.

Discover more about the inner workings of the Royal Academy through stories and anecdotes from the President and Royal Academicians themselves, for this special afternoon tea in the Keeper’s House.

This is an exclusive opportunity to put your questions to the Christopher Le Brun PRA and Royal Academicians, including Mali Morris RA during our week-long celebration of the Friends of the RA.

Christopher Le Brun is a painter, sculptor and printmaker. He was elected President of the Royal Academy in December 2011. He is the 26th President since Sir Joshua Reynolds and the youngest to be elected since Lord Leighton in 1878.

Mali Morris RA is a painter and was elected as a Royal Academician in March 2010. Her work explores the language of painting with her complex abstract compositions, filled with luminous colour.

Taking place throughout Friends Week, we are offering Friends of the RA a unique opportunity to gain insight to the inner workings of the Royal Academy through talks, tours, workshops, stories and anecdotes from the experts.

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

Members of the Academicians’ Room, please call 020 7300 8090 to book. Friends of the RA can book by phone or online.
