Burlington House, Piccadilly, W1J 0 London, United Kingdom
Inspired by the fantasylands of Georgian London, the RA transforms into a re-imagined pleasure garden for a magical summer’s night.
Georgian pleasure gardens were extraordinary spaces for entertainment, art and music. These magical gardens with tree-lined avenues glowing with lanterns, music concerts in elegant rotundas, masquerade balls, al fresco dining and natural spring water (believed to have healing properties) gave ordinary Londoners a chance to escape city life for the night.
We invite you to spend a summer’s evening in our re-imagined Pleasure Garden and experience the magical nocturnal amusement parks of Georgian England.
Explore the RA’s historic spaces, gardens and newly unveiled building at 6 Burlington Gardens to discover spectacular illuminations, live music, DJs, soundscapes, moonlit dancefloors, gin grottos, artist installations, creative activities, secret bars and a summer ball.
The Royal Academy is proud to be working with Time Out as official ticketing partner.
