Even during the darkest days of the Blitz, the National Gallery stayed open for business, providing an eager audience with concerts, exhibitions, talks and cakes!
From the evacuation out of London of some of the world’s finest masterpieces to the extraordinary wartime concerts put on by pianist Myra Hess, Senior Research Curator Susanna Avery-Quash and Suzanne Bosman, author of ‘The National Gallery in Wartime’, will journey through the Gallery after-hours to explore how life carried on at the Gallery during WWII.
The live broadcast will be shared on the National Gallery’s Facebook page and a replay version will be available on the channel afterwards.
