Christmas festivities – with a Dutch flavour – continue tonight. Shop for unique gifts, enjoy drinks and a nibble, and take in a performance by the Choir of St James’ King Street. Grab a ticket to the final lecture in our Masters of simplicity series to discover the unrivalled genius of Rembrandt. Or, for a complete change of pace, see one of the greatest and grittiest films of the 1970s, Dog day afternoon, on the big screen.

This is the last of our Art After Hours for 2017. We’ll be back on 10 January. In the meantime, the Gallery is open every day, except Christmas Day, until 5pm.
