General

The Art Night 2018 trail runs from the South Bank to Battersea Power Station, with artworks and pop up performances in over sixty locations. All 12 events in the programme curated by Hayward Gallery are free and open to all without tickets. All of the +50 events in the Art Night Open are free, a small number are ticketed.

Night Owls can explore the Saturday trail from 6pm until 6am; each venue or site is within walking distance of the next event on the trail and there is step free access to all venues in the Hayward Gallery-curated programme.

The curated programme of work is presented in a variety of spaces—both indoor and outdoors. Visitors should come prepared for a stroll through public parks and gardens, historic buildings and unusual sites.

Please view our map to plan your night or take a look at the overall schedule of performances.

You can pick up a copy of our Visitors’ Guide at any of the Hayward Gallery-curated programme sites or at the Art Night Info Hub at Battersea Power Station. Download the Visit London App to navigate the Art Night Trail (available for iOS and Android).

Any questions? Ask our Art Night Guides, recognisable by their purple and green T-shirts.

Locations and transport

Art Night is an urban event and we would like to ensure that our transport impact remains low. You can easily walk or cycle between venues, and we would encourage you to do so.

The Art Night trail is well connected by public transport, including a bespoke Thames Clipper service throughout the event.

There is likely to be a high demand for taxis in the Vauxhall area, with large numbers of visitors attending London Pride events that are also happening this weekend. Travelling on foot through this section of the trail may well be quicker. There are several Night Tube stations connecting the trail to get you home, including Vauxhall, Oval, Waterloo and Embankment.

See the overall schedule of performances here.

Accessibility

All venues have step free-access. The British Interplanetary Society exhibition is across three spaces in the building, two of which are fully accessible.

Art Night Guides

Any questions? Ask our Art Night Guides, recognisable by their purple and green T-shirts.

The Art Night Guide scheme is in collaboration with Art Fund. Art Night Guides are passionate volunteers who are there to help you navigate the festival and answer any artistic or historical questions you might have about the venues, artists, and projects.

The scheme offers students and recent graduates the chance to develop valuable professional skills as they receive training from the curatorial team, meet the artists, and become an integral part of making Art Night accessible and unforgettable for all.

No. Admission is free and tickets are not required.
Some Art Night Open events may require advance booking, check project page details for further details.

Will I have to queue?

Expect queues for entry during peak times (7pm–10pm), and at some smaller venues (British Interplanetary Society, The Garden Museum and Embassy Gardens Marketing Suite). Art Night Guides will be on hand across the trail too throughout the night and can advise on waiting times — there will always be several other events or exhibitions to visit nearby.

Large bags are not permitted in any venues, and there are no cloakroom facilities available on the trail. Please avoid bringing large items with you.

Can I take photos?

Yes. Photography without flash is allowed in the exhibitions.

Can I take food and drink with me?

No, visitors are not allowed to eat or drink in venues. Bringing alcohol into venues is strictly prohibited, and bag searches will be in operation. Several venues have bars and restaurants on site or nearby which will be open until late.

Can I bring my dog to the exhibition?

Assistance dogs are welcome in all venues.

What else is happening over the weekend?

Pride events take place throughout June and July, and many iconic LGBT venues in Vauxhall will host parties and events throughout the evening of 7th July to coincide with the annual Pride in London Parade.

Where can I report or collect lost and found items?

Please report lost items to any Venue or Security staff. Any found items will be returned to the Art Night Office after the event for collection, email hello@artnight.london for more information.
