Experience a magical summer’s night in our reimagined pleasure garden, inspired by the fantasylands of Georgian London.

Pleasure Gardens were extraordinary 18th-century spaces for entertainment, art and music. These glittering night gardens of tree-lined boulevards, luminous glowing lanterns, masquerade balls, al fresco dining, woodland music concerts and healing fountains gave ordinary Londoners a chance to escape city life for the night.

At our magical summer’s night festival, we invite you to explore the RA’s campus and discover spectacular light shows, illuminated dance floors, secret bars, artist installations, live music and DJs. Enjoy voguing, karaoke, romantic-fiction writing, costume parades, indie disco singalongs, a classical club night and much more to be announced.

Tickets include after-hours entry to the Summer Exhibition and Helene Schjerfbeck.

The RA is proud to be partnering with Time Out London.
