Summer Show

It’s a celebration of the year’s work, and amazing to be part of something that is so large, diverse and high profile.

Hazel McGregor, Tutor, Cornwall College

The culmination of the Saturday Club year is a public exhibition of all Club Members’ work in the Embankment Galleries at London’s historic Somerset House.

Each Club plans its own section of the show, selecting highlights from its year’s work or preparing a special exhibit. Every Club Member’s contribution is represented at the Summer Show, and some Clubs also organise an additional exhibition at their local gallery or cultural institution.

Club Members and their families are all invited to their own Summer Show private view, when each Member is presented with a National Saturday Club Certificate of Achievement and a Yearbook. There’s also a private view of the show held for VIPs and National Saturday Club partners. The exhibition then opens to the public and regularly receives more than 3,000 visitors.
