Enjoy an exclusive private view of the exhibition away from the crowds with live music, cocktail on arrival, plus more themed food and drinks available to buy.

We cannot wait to host another of our popular premium private views, where the reception will be filled with ambient music and a live DJ performance, creating the perfect atmosphere to walk around and enjoy the awe-inspiring Oceania exhibition of over 200 works.

As our guests you will be treated to a complimentary Pacific-themed cocktail on arrival – and you won’t be able to resist staying for dinner to savour delicious themed food inspired by the islands, specially prepared by renowned caterers Peyton & Byrne, available to purchase at the newly refurbished RA Café.

Enjoy the evening with a friend or family member and introduce them to the RA in style, the perfect way to spend your Saturday evening.

For a truly VIP experience, upgrade your ticket and treat yourself to free-flowing sparkling wine in our private members’ club, the Academicians’ Room. The intimate club room is the perfect place to celebrate in style and take in beautiful limited editions by Paula Rego RA. VIP guests can also enjoy access to the private bar, where our resident mixologist will be serving signature cocktails, available to buy until late.
