Friday Lates

Credit Suisse supports the Gallery’s Friday Lates programme, which is attended by over 266,000 visitors every year. The Gallery is open late every Friday from 6–9pm.


Since the beginning of the partnership, the Gallery has collaborated with partner charities of Credit Suisse on a range of projects. These have included a series of photography workshops for young people with Centrepoint, as well as workshops with the Alzheimer’s Society, The Place2Be, The Children’s Trust, and Credit Suisse partner schools.

From 2015 to 2016, the Gallery worked with City Year to deliver an innovative bespoke personal and cultural development opportunity for students and City Year UK volunteers at four inner city schools.
