The Serpentine Gallery's Thursday Night Live sessions, which take place every Thursday from 5th July to 30th August, offer a chance to see some well-known artists and entertainers in the 'intimate' setting of the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion. The series opens on Thursday 5th July with special guest Gary Kemp, who this month received The Ivor Novello Songwriting Life Time Achievement Award. BBC London's Robert Elms is your host for the evening and, depending on the night you choose to go, you can see designer Sir Paul Smith, impressionist Phil Cornwell, explorer Justin Packshaw, magician Ali Cook, singer Judith Owen, Pink Floyd bassist Guy Pratt and comic cabaret from The Segue Sisters. See the Serpentine Gallery website for details.

 

About Serpentine Gallery

Found in the middle of leafy Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, there are two galleries that go by the name of The Serpentine, the original Serpentine Gallery, established in 1970, and the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, a 5 minute walk away across The Serpentine Bridge, was added in 2013.
