18:30 – 21:30 

The Courtauld Gallery will open its doors for late-night access until 9.30PM on 26 May and 28 July as part of the new series of Courtauld Lates – giving visitors the chance to enjoy an evening of world-class art, cocktails, music, and performances surrounded by The Courtauld’s collection of masterpieces at Somerset House.

Visitors can unwind after work and explore masterpieces from The Courtauld’s world-renowned art collection, such as Van Gogh’s Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear and Manet’s A Bar at the Folies-Bergère. Other highlights include its 20th Century British Art display, the Bloomsbury Room and the magnificent Blavatnik Fine Rooms.

A pop-up bar serving ‘Courtauld Cocktails’ will be open in the Lower Ground terrace courtyard, while the Art Café will be open for refreshments until late with a live DJ set in the Gallery Entrance Hall throughout the evening.
