Just before I went on holiday I got a chance to attend a preview of The Dulwich Pavilion. To celebrate 200 years since it first opened to the public The Dulwich Picture Gallery will host free Friday Lates centred around its new pavilion. The themed evenings will include performance, talks, and music, bringing together a variety of experts from across the art and design world. Visitors can also relax and unwind in the pavilion bar with food and drink provided by The Camberwell Arms.
This year’s Pavilion has been designed by emerging South London-based architects, IF_DO and features a series of mirrored screens, reflecting the Gallery’s iconic architecture and surrounding gardens.
It will be FREE for all to explore throughout the summer and will open late on Fridays throughout June and July with a different line-up of cultural activities each week.
During the preview we got to sample the Scandi-inspired menu with and a vast array of cocktails. My personal favourite would have to be the Radish and anchoiade which I was pleasantly surprised by.
