See the restoration process right up close - it's fascinating! March 18, 2018 11:40
We are very excited to be teaming up with the Old Royal Navy College in Greenwich. If you haven't been to their Painted Hall, now is a brilliant time to go. Normally, it's right up high and out of reach, but right now it's being restored. In a stroke of genius, the College decided that instead of shutting the hall, it would bring loads of people in to see the specialist work up close.
You head up an industrial set of scaffolding stairs (not wobbly at all, I am terrified of heights and I was totally fine). At the top, you come out onto a temporary floor into an incredible space, where the lavishly painted ceiling is almost in touching distance.There are regular tours for the public, but on 23rd March you can come to THE CELESTIAL CITY Late and see it with dancing, drinks and craft! Create your kaleidoscope with London Craft Club, learn about the astrological signs, listen to otherworldly music and dance among the stars at this marvellous mytholoy-themed Friday Late.
The Painted Hall, Old Royal Navy College, Greenwich, £12/£10, book ahead, 7pm
