Evening sketching at the South Bank Centre - Wednesday 19 June 2019

Join us for early evening sketching (6pm-8pm) at the South Bank Centre and Festival Hall by London’s River Thames.  Explore the new South Bank Centre roof garden, sketch the surrounding buildings and views across the river, and people enjoying the facilities of this leading arts location.  We can also draw inside the Festival Hall, particularly if the weather is poor.
This event is free of charge, no need to book, just turn up with your art kit.

Where and when to meet:
6pm: Meet near the doors of the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room (see photograph above).  The roof garden is at the top of the bright yellow concrete staircase in the photograph. 
8pm: Meet at the roof garden (if the weather is good) or inside the Festival Hall at level 1 by the riverside terrace (if the weather is poor) to look at drawings done, and to take group photographs.
If the weather is good we could then stay for a drink at the roof garden bar, or go to the bar/cafe inside the Festival Hall if we prefer. 

Options for drawing include:

The new South Bank roof garden has planting, and views of the buildings in the area, including across the river.

The Festival Hall has interesting interiors, lots of opportunities for people watching, and views from its big windows, on several levels.

There are views from the Hungerford Bridge/Golden Jubilee footbridges.
The South Bank has restaurants, bars, planting, and public art.
Practical information: 
The nearest underground stations are Embankment, Charing Cross or Waterloo.  The Festival Hall and South Bank Centre has food and drink, and toilets.
The event is run by Jo Dungey and Zane Karklina
