Summer Exhibition Preview Party 2017

Photo by Benedict Johnson

The highlight of London’s social calendar.

Be the first to view and buy works at the world famous Summer Exhibition and enjoy a glamorous evening of champagne and canapés in the beautiful surroundings of the Royal Academy.

The purpose of the Summer Exhibition, which was set up in 1768, is to raise funds to support the Royal Academy Schools, Britain’s first art school. Help us continue this tradition by supporting the Summer Exhibition Preview Party.

Please note that refunds are not given, and tickets will not be issued without guests’ names. Tickets will be sent out approximately two weeks before the event. Tickets may not be transferred. Please bring identification with you if collecting tickets on the day of the event.
