5 Free Exhibitions in London To See Before They Go
We want to showcase some of the top free exhibitions in London you can see this January. Forget the winter blues and get out to discover what makes London such a creative metropolis.
We finally got round to seeing the new Paddington movie last week and it was a delight. See the movie in the hidden Barbican cinema and then discover the roots of this marmeladeophile & national treasure for free at the Museum of London. Luckily for us the exhibition has been extended until 25 January so be sure to check out this lovely collection before it goes back to Peru.
During a visit to Somerset House to see fashion photographer Guy Bourdin’s exhibition we stumbled upon this amazing collection of music photography from rock groupie Chris Stein.
The Saatchi Gallery presents a new spin on the Pop Art phenomenon. A vast exhibition, which we’re so glad is not paid for!
Chris Bracey’s neon artworks are legendary, take the chance to see this incredible showcase of the late neon artist’s body of work where it belongs in seedy Soho.
Ok so this one isn’t ultra urgent as it continues until the 30 April. However, procrastinate no longer and seek out one of London’s hidden treasures at London Metropolitan Archives. The London Gothic exhibition features some astounding stories of darkest London including a pyramid of death, sideshow posters & London’s own Frankenstein.
I am Joint Editor at To Do List. I like free, cheap & offbeat London, especially: cabaret, art, theatre, pop-ups, eating out, quirky films, museums, day trips, social enterprise & much more.
