A Renaissance Christmas at the RA
Saturday 29 November, 6.30-10pm
|Join us for a festive celebration inspired by our dazzling Giovanni Battista Moroni exhibition (★★★★★ Time Out).|
Be transported back to the Italy depicted in Moroni’s portraits with a night of Renaissance art, music, food, drink and dance. Highlights include magnificent choral performances from The Renaissance Singers, roaming minstrels, Italian folk storytelling and more.
And it’s not just the sights and sounds of the era that we’ll be recreating...
Take part in a themed life drawing session with Art Macabre, have your own portrait sketched beside the RA’s Renaissance treasure – the Taddei Tondo, Britain’s only marble sculpture by Michelangelo, or take a special ‘scent tour’ and discover the perfumes that would have dominated the sensory landscape of the 16th century.
Tickets are £20, and include entrance to the exhibition and a bespoke seasonal cocktail inspired by the flavours of the Renaissance.
