NG200 - Celebrating 200 years of the National Gallery

Starting on 10 May 2024


On 10 May 2024 we come together and start our celebration of the National Gallery’s Bicentenary - 200 years of bringing people and paintings together.

For the entire year, we'll celebrate our past and look forward to our future with a year-long festival of art, creativity and imagination which sets the tone for our third century.
