Art spills from the galleries and into the night, taking over the magnificent Courtyard of the RA and opulent town-palace, right in the heart of Piccadilly

Come and experience artist installations, music, cocktails, maypole dancing, pagan cinema and more as the RA becomes your playground for our summer solstice festival.

Wander through our courtyard, temporary nomadic yurt and gilded Fine Rooms to discover neon UV life drawing, maypole dancing, Pagan crafts, Wicker Man sculptures, floral installations, secret bars, glitter, live chamber music, ritualistic performance art, interactive digital graffiti, body painting, ‘70s disco DJs and more …

Dress code: forest creatures / opulent psychedelic
Think UV nymphs, wild witches, glitch neons, woodland spirits and rustic romantics. Need inspiration? Head to Pinterest
