We are delighted to announce that this year’s London Visit will be hosted by the Greater London Authority at City Hall.
The London Visit in November is a key moment in the National Saturday Club calendar where all 1,600 13–16 year old Club members from across the country come together for the first time. It is an opportunity to introduce them to the national network and for them to go on specially arranged tours of some of the UK’s leading cultural destinations.
City Hall is the perfect location to welcome the young people to London, their capital city. Deputy Mayor for Culture and the Creative Industries, Justine Simons said: “London is a global capital for culture and every young person in the capital and across the UK deserves the opportunity to take part in our growing creative industries. The National Saturday Club helps young people discover and develop their creative interests beyond the classroom, inspiring the talent for the future. I am delighted that these passionate young people will be visiting London and their artwork will be displayed at City Hall.”
After receiving a special welcome and seeing their self-portraits displayed in a pop-up exhibition at City Hall, Club members will go on special visits to some of London’s leading cultural destinations including Barbican, Design Museum, Fashion and Textile Museum, National Portrait Gallery, Somerset House, Science Gallery, Shakespeare’s Globe, Tate Modern, Victoria and Albert Museum and Westminster Menswear Archive.
