The Royal Academy's Evening Summer Solstice Festival in Piccadilly

On Saturday June 17th the Royal Academy in Piccadilly will be holding a boutique arts festival to celebrate the summer solstice (a few days early, it must be said...).  There will be an enchanted woodland, street food from people like Nanny Bill's, cocktails from people like Christabel's, and even a screening of The Wicker Man in a pop-up cinema.  Tickets are just £45 for a strange and creative night of entertainment.

"The RA becomes your playground for the night at this boutique arts festival to celebrate the Summer Solstice.
Wander through our courtyard, temporary nomadic yurt and gilded Fine Rooms to discover neon UV life drawing, maypole dancing, Pagan crafts, Wicker Man sculptures, floral installations, secret bars, glitter, live chamber music, ritualistic performance art, interactive digital graffiti, body painting, ‘70s disco DJs and more …
Dress code: psychedelic creatures
Think UV nymphs, wild woodland witches, glitch neons, fantastical fauns and technicolour fairies
Experience the RA’s courtyard magically transformed into an enchanted woodland for the night, complete with woodland trees and foliage. Sit outside and discover our hidden forest dens with mythical activities and performances including:
