Tickets are now on sale for this very special occasion celebrating the re-opening of the RWA after the completion of the Light and Inspiration project. Places for this wonderful evening are limited so please book soon to avoid disappointment.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy a talk and dinner with special guest and friend of the RWA, Grayson Perry, surrounded by world-class art from Tracey Emin, Sonia Boyce, Antony Gormley, Gillian Wearing, Shanti Panchal, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Lucian Freud and Patrick Heron and many more in the current exhibition, Me, Myself, I: Artists' Self-Portraits.

There will be fun, games and a chance to win wonderful prizes, whilst raising vital funds for RWA’s celebrated work bringing art and creativity to communities in Bristol and beyond.

What’s included:

  • Reception drink and delicious canapes, live music and games, to be joined by Grayson Perry.
  • An entertaining pre-dinner talk by Grayson about art, life and lockdowns.
  • Three-course international sharing feast with an emphasis on quality and sustainability, where every morsel is delicious!
  • Plenty of fun and games, including a silent auction and a live auction with BBC’s Izzy Balmer, celebrity auctioneer from the ever-popular Antique’s Road Trip.
  • Private Eye’s resident MD, broadcaster and comedian Dr Phil Hammond will steer us through the fun-filled evening.

Tickets are £150 per person. A limited number of premium tickets are available at £500 to include pre-dinner VIP drinks with Grayson (6.30pm – 7pm) and you will be seated closer to Grayson for the pre-dinner talk and dinner.

Why not book a ‘Dinner Date’ for two, or a ‘Dinner Party’ with 4 or more friends? Seating will be on long tables to accommodate any group size.

If you wish to be seated with friends, please make one booking for the whole party selecting the number of tickets you require. As lead booker, we will ask you to supply contact details and dietary requirements for all dinner party guests. We will contact you by email with a form to complete and return. You do not need these details at the time of booking.
