Free live music at the National Gallery

Admittedly, those who work in Central London will probably be aware of this one already, but the National Gallery runs a weekly programme of late openings with live classical music in amongst the paintings themselves.

It's worth reminding people of this, however, as annoyingly in your author's considered view the Gallery took the decision in February to fall in line with almost every other cultural establishment in town and move late openings to Fridays (when previously they were on Wednesdays). Whilst this deals a blow to after-work culture midweek, it is probably a sensible move.

Concerts feature artists from the Royal College of Music, and are funded thanks to generous support of the family of the late Canadian cultural fundraiser Belle Shenkman.

The Concerts take place in Room 18 of the gallery from 6-7pm on Friday nights. For more information visit the National Gallery Website.
