Charles Saumarez Smith – East London
10th May 2017 at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm| £10
Charles Saumarez Smith is best known as the chief executive of the Royal Academy. He has also been director of the National Portrait Gallery and the National Gallery. Throughout these years, and since the 1980s, he has lived in East London and explored it with relish and diligence. He has now produced the fascinating ‘East London‘, to be published in late April by Thames & Hudson (£19.95). We are thrilled that he has agreed to come and talk to us about it here, and confident that he will do so with his customary erudition, charm and flair.
Incidentally, we will also have the special edition of East London at Sandoe’s (£125).
