It may be a bit busier tonight.
For us, Christmas season always begins with the National Gallery's seasonal shopping nights
. Whether you're after something tasteful to decorate the tree, or just want to soak in the atmosphere of world famous art plus live Italian Baroque music, attendance is becoming something of a tradition. Best of all, shoppers will be treated to free mulled wine and mince pies. Head along to the gallery shop (Sainsbury wing) tonight between 6.30pm and 8.45pm, and again next Friday (26 November), when the evening will reprise.
