Late Shift Fun

Work can be a pain, can't it? It stops you going out and having a good time. There are so many fascinating things going on around the city every day, yet you are trapped in an office doing paperwork, or busy labouring on a construction site.

But the National Portrait Gallery understands. They know you would rather be somewhere else doing something fun. And while they may not be able to call in sick for you, NPG isn't sitting by doing nothing. Instead they are offering the equivalent of an after school club.

The Late Shift is a programme of free evening events that adults can attend after work on Thursdays and Fridays. With tours, workshops, and music, these drop-in events run between 6pm-9pm.
