The London Illustration Fair
London’s only illustration-dedicated fair returns with a psychedelia-themed three-day event of artist-led stands, workshops, live DJs and pop-up food stalls.
An event that asks artists to capture the spirit of London in just one day seems like the sort of challenge you'd need to be Tony Hart to relish. The day following their creation (July 12) all the completed artworks go on sale in a public exhibition at Chelsea Town Hall.
Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon
A byword for timeless elegance both on-screen and off, Audrey Hepburn is one of the twentieth century’s most enduring style icons. The National Portrait Gallery’s summer show charts Hepburn’s picture-perfect career, from West End chorus girl to leading lady.
