Lloyd Park, Forrest Road
London, UK E17 4PP
Free. No need to book. First Thursday of every other month. Galleries and bar open all evening.
WMG Lates, our bimonthly after-hours events, are a chance to experience the Gallery in a relaxed adult atmosphere. Visit the special exhibitions and sample some of the best art, music, poetry and performance in London. This month, inspired by Bob and Roberta Smith’s exhibition Art Is Your Human Right, we explore the art of protest through punk, poetry, craft and film.
