RA Late: Summer Pleasure Garden

We are pleased to the opportunity for UAL students to become part of the unique and spectacular RA Late programme.

Titled 'Summer Pleasure Garden' this Late opening event will take place across the entire Royal Academy campus including the newly unveiled 6 Burlington Gardens.

Inspired by Georgian pleasure gardens which were extraordinary spaces for entertainment, art and music. These magical gardens with tree-lined avenues glowing with lanterns, music concerts in elegant rotundas, masquerade balls, al fresco dining and natural spring water (believed to have healing properties) gave ordinary Londoners a chance to escape city life for the night.

Late opening events are fantasy-inspired and themed events which transform the Royal Academy for an evening of workshops, performances, installations, interaction and participation.
