Checked out our newsletter celebrating the London art scene yet?

A lovely community of London art lovers has been growing around our free weekly newsletter, exploring the city's art world and covering everything from big-name exhibitions to small neighbourhood galleries, installations, sculpture festivals, textile art, aerial photography, public art, artist talks, free events and more.

There are also paid subscriber options, with regular bonus features, reviews, access to the full archives and other community perks. And because we're in a spring mood — and it's that time of year when suddenly the idea of sculpture trails and gallery-hopping and exploring everything London's art world has to offer sounds so exciting again — we're running a spring discount offer for paid subscribers. There'll be 20% off our paid subscriptions till 14 March, just in time for the bank holiday weekend season to start...

Here's everything you need to know.

What's Londonist: Urban Palette, again?

We launched Londonist: Urban Palette in January — curated by our visual arts editor, Tabish Khan, a man so into his art that he visits over 1,000 museums and galleries every year.

And a huge thanks to everybody who's signed up already — we have a lovely community of nearly 2,000 subscribers now, with a free weekly read sent every Monday, gathering up some of the biggest news, reviews, interviews and insights from London's art world.

How much will it cost?

Paid subscriptions are £5 a month, or just £45 for a full year (that works out around 86p per week!) And if you sign up with our Leap Year offer (available till 14 March 2024) we're offering 20% off.
