The London Visit is a key moment at the beginning of the National Saturday Club year when Club members from across the country come together for the first time.
This network-wide event provides an important opportunity for Club members to visit their capital city and to attend specially arranged tours of some of the UK’s leading cultural institutions.
The London Visit 2023 will take place on Saturday 2 December. Club members have the opportunity to access world-class permanent collections and the latest exhibitions at museums and galleries including Autograph, Design Museum, Hayward Gallery, London Transport Museum, London Zoo, Makerversity, National Theatre, Science Museum, Somerset House, Tate Britain, The Photographers’ Gallery, Victoria and Albert Museum, and Whitechapel Gallery.
At a welcome event generously hosted by Central Saint Martins, Club members will hear from guest speakers, take part in collaborative, confidence-building activities, and see their self-portraits on display.
Club member self-portraits
The annual self-portrait project launches the National Saturday Club year, introducing Club members nationwide to ideas of self expression.
The project enables Saturday Clubs to explore themes of identity and self-expression through a wide variety of creative media, across all the subject strands of the National Saturday Club programme.
Collectively, the outcomes are a celebration young people’s individuality – their diversity, imagination, and unique perspectives.
