HAMPSTEAD 2020 PROGRAMME
Be one of the first to explore the eclectic range of works on Wednesday 29 April from 5.30 – 9.30pm. Enjoy a complimentary drink whilst you delve into the artwork at our evening view in support of our Charity Beneficiary, the British Red Cross.
The British Red Cross connects human kindness with human crisis. For the last 150 years, the British Red Cross has been helping millions of people in the UK and overseas, without judgement. It is proud to be the biggest single provider of support for vulnerable refugees and people seeking asylum in the UK. The organisation offers a range of services, from supporting people when they first arrive in the UK, to providing advice, mental health support and opportunities for refugees as they navigate through the immigration system.
The British Red Cross also works to reunite families torn apart by war and helps them settle into new communities. Overseas, as part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, the charity helps people who are migrating or forced out of their homes, and end up travelling along some of the world’s most dangerous routes. The British Red Cross wants to ensure they are safe at every stage of their journey.
Join us on Thursday 30 April from 5.30 – 9.00pm and catch a slice of midweek culture for our late-night opening. We’ll be offering the chance to enjoy a complimentary drink whilst exploring art after dark and delving into our innovative programme of unmissable workshops.
