Our biggest ever
 Summer Show is open!

The National Saturday Club Summer Show is an exhibition of work by 1,200 talented 13–16 year olds attending free Saturday morning classes at their local college or university.

All the Saturday Clubs are represented, Art&Design, Science&Engineering, Fashion&Business and our newest club, Writing&Talking!

Designed by architects Dallas Pierce Quintero and occupying over 1,000 square metres, the Summer Show will be open to the public and free of charge from 12-18 June, 10am – 6pm at the Embankment Galleries, Somerset House, Strand, London, WC2R 1LA.

A model city on Mars, a opera stage set for Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale, commemorative football designs and robots that can draw are just some of the creative work produced by young people from across the UK which will go on show to the public in London this week.

“We believe that every child in the country should have the opportunity to study subjects they love on Saturdays at their local college or university, free of charge. They can discover their talents, grow in confidence and find careers they will enjoy.” Sir John Sorrell CBE & Frances Sorrell OBE, co-founders and trustees of the National Saturday Club Trust

New Sorrell Foundation Website

The Sorrell Foundation has a new website!* 
Frances and John Sorrell set up the Sorrell Foundation in 1999 with the aim of inspiring creativity in young people. 

It has since worked with thousands of young people across the UK on initiatives such as joinedupdesignforschools, myplace, Design Out Crime, and of course, the National Saturday Clubs. Take a look here!
