Greenwich’s restored Painted Hall normally charges for entry, but for a couple of weeks, entry will be free in the evenings.
The reason being that there will be a giant floating orb hanging in the middle of the Painted Room as part of the Greenwich+Docklands Festival.
If you saw Luke Jerram’s Moon exhibition in the Natural History Museum (or elsewhere), then you know what to expect, a huge highly realistic ethereally globe glowing from within — except this time it’s of the Earth.
The Gaia exhibition runs from Friday 28th August to Saturday 12th September – and is not just a chance to see this curiously compelling art event, but also to get into the Painted Hall for free.
You can pay the usual entry fees of £11 to see Gaia during the daytime, but in the evenings, entry will be free of charge from 6pm to 10pm.
As is the new normal, timed entry tickets are required to visit. Tickets are released on Monday (24th Aug) at 10am here.
