To celebrate summer, we’re hosting Nude at night, a series of late openings with free events on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights throughout January.

We’re open until 10pm so you can experience the exhibition Nude: art from the Tate collection.

Free events

Wednesday nights Join us for our special January edition of Art After Hours with Nude fictions celebrity readings as well as films and live music.

Thursday nights It’s time to discuss the big questions associated with nude and nudity in our lively philosophy sessions, Naked ideas, held in partnership with The School of Life. Or buy an exhibition ticket and join a guest artist or thinker for The shock of the nude, a thought-provoking guided tour of Nude.

Friday nights Our models leave some clothes on for our Nearly nude drawing workshops. Grab a drink from our pop-up bar and learn how to sketch the human form. And it’s another chance to join a guest artist or thinker for The shock of the nude, a unique tour of the Nude exhibition.
