Exhibition talks

There will be specialist curator talks on the current exhibition 'Fortitude' at 6pm and 7pm.

In 2021 we began collecting the experiences of healthcare professionals working in the COVID-19 pandemic. With their permission, the RCP is privileged to share their experiences, in their own words.

Please be aware this exhibition contains images, descriptions and audio recordings relating to illness, death, grief and trauma.

Craft café

Inspired by the craft-making activities that provided solace for healthcare workers and many others during the pandemic our December ‘Craft café’ will be both historically and festively themed. Learn to create decorative pomanders, once used to protect against disease they also make fabulous festive decorations - all materials provided.

The Regent’s Perk café will also be open for refreshments.

fine art portraits and ceremonial silver
