London Visit

The London Visit is one big happy event. Their work on display, the photographers, the speeches – many Club members said it was an eye-opening experience to see so many different approaches to a subject.

The National Saturday Club’s London Visit takes place every autumn. All Clubs around the country are invited to the capital to meet each other and show their work. Clubs in Scotland and Northern Ireland may gather in Edinburgh or Belfast instead.

Before the event, Club Members are asked to create self-portraits, which are sent to London and all displayed in a big group exhibition on the day. This is a brilliant opportunity for Clubs to see what ideas others have been working on and for everyone to take part in a joint workshop. As part of the London Visit, Clubs also go on bespoke tours of the best cultural or scientific exhibitions showing in London at the time.

All these activities are organised by the National Saturday Club as part of every Saturday Club’s programme. Members often describe the event as a highlight of their year.
