Impressionists and Post-Impressionists at the Courtauld Gallery

Date: May 12, 2018

Time: TBC

Location: Courtauld Gallery, Strand, London WC2

This Tour is sold out with a waiting list.

Private tour of Impressionists and Post-Impressionists galleries at The Courtauld. Time to be confirmed, expect late morning. Tour to last around 1 hr 15 mins.

Cost will be £6 entrance to gallery plus £5 directly to tour guide, Hilary Gaster for the tour. Members with Art Pass will not have to pay the gallery part but please let us know as we need to fill a form in. We have asked for us to pay on the day.

Will start to take email addresses of interested members at March meeting and then again (and hopefully to finalise) at April meeting after which we will send the booking form to the Courtauld.

We need a minimum of 10 to make it work. Hilary suggests no more than 12 per party due to size of gallery (but can do 2 sessions). Hope that makes sense! Other halves/friends welcome. We will find a nice place for lunch!
