Shakespeare to Winehouse: Icons from the National Portrait Gallery, London

12 Mar - 17 Jul 2022

From Shakespeare to Winehouse, Darwin to Dickens, the Beatles, Brontë sisters and Beckham, the National Portrait Gallery, London holds the world’s most extensive collection of portraits. While they undergo the largest renovation of their building in 125 years, the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra is thrilled to show over 80 London treasures for an exclusive exhibition in 2022!

Visit famous faces from the sixteenth century to today. Think Mandela, Malala, Churchill, Diana, Bowie, Sheeran, Westwood and more! And iconic artists like Warhol, Hockney, Emin, van Dyck, Rubens and Freud. There’ll be fame, power, love, loss, innovation and the downright inspirational.

So while London’s calling, get your dose of Camden in Canberra and stay with our friends at Midnight Hotel Autograph Collection. Get some bo-peep (sleep) and save bread and honey (money) with their Shakespeare to Winehouse accommodation package that’s fit for a royal! (Details on our website.)

This really is a rare, once-in-a-generation opportunity – showing exclusively at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra – so keep calm and grab your ticket!
