Outing to the National Portrait Gallery and RPO concert at the Cadogan Hall
Tuesday 27 November 2018

This is an afternoon and evening outing, with the coach leaving at 1pm, and returning us to Effingham by about 11pm.

The exhibition is called ‘Gainsborough's Family Album’, and the concert is the the Liszt Piano Concerto No1, Bartok’s Concerto for Orchestra, and Kodaly’s Dances of Galanta, with  the wonderful Alexander Shelley as conductor. 

The exhibition will feature over fifty works from public and private collections across the world, including a number of works that have never been on public display in the UK, and bringing together for the first time all twelve surviving portraits of Thomas Gainsborough’s daughters.

The exhibition's layout will also chart Gainsborough’s career from youth to maturity, telling of his rise to fame and fortune, and providing a unique insight into his private life and motivations.

Ticket price for the coach and concert is £43. And if you’re a member of the National Portrait Gallery, the exhibition entrance is free. If you’re an Art Fund member, the exhibition entrance is £7, making the outing price £50. If you’re not a member of either, then the group ticket cost for the exhibition is £13, making the outing price £56.

The actual concert seats alone would normally cost £40, so again this outing is a really good price.
