AP Theatre inspires British Artists

The Friends of the Theatre invited the Royal Society of British Artists on a special tour of the Theatre. They were given time to take it in, and to take pictures. The inspiration that it brought led many of them to produce an amazing diversity of art works. In this video, we hear what excited the artists, and see what they produced.

AP gets quite a mention in the second half. Here's a photo showing Louise Stewart, CEO of AP, speaking at the opening. If you've not been, there's still time before it closes on Sunday 14th July. It's free to FAPT members. It's an interesting art show (better than the Royal Academy, I've heard people say several times) and you can always pop in on your way for tea with her majesty!

Royal Society of British Artists Annual Exhibition 2019: From 4 to 14 July 2019 in Main Gallery, North Galleries and Threadneedle Space. 10am to 5pm (closes 1pm on final day). Admission £4 or free with invitation to FAPT members (in case you're hunting for it, from Nigel Willmott, sent on 24 June).

AP East Court & Theatre are open!

Alexandra Palace East Court and Theatre are now open to the public. Photographer Keith Armstrong captured the three-year process of bringing them back to life. Through some of his favourite images - just a few of the 400 in his new book, 'Restoration' - he tells us how the Victorian theatre captured his heart. More here.
