Musical Theatre Summer Late at Pallant House Gallery

September 21, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Join us for a magical evening of art and musical theatre in partnership with the University of Chichester.

Throughout this free evening, you can experience our summer exhibitions, enjoy a series of exciting performances in our courtyard from the university’s Musical Theatre department, get creative in a drop-in collage workshop and much more.

Gwen John’s key life moments will be beautifully depicted through song and performance. From her childhood struggles to her influential years of study and career in London and Paris, both her heartaches and losses will be brought to life by our talented performers. There will be numbers from Wicked, Little Shop of Horrors, Frozen, Shrek, Follies and many more!

Meanwhile in the studio, Fine Art students will host a hands-on collage workshop, recreating Gwen John’s Portrait Group 1897-8. This is a fun and experimental collaborative workshop for all ages and levels. It’s a chance to get involved and unleash your inner artist!

Plus, you can join a guided tour through our summer exhibition, Gwen John: Art and Life in London and Paris, check out our collection of books on dance and theatre in our Library and enjoy free access to all our gallery spaces throughout the evening.

Pallant Café will be offering dinner and a selection of drinks all evening.

Entry to the event is FREE, but please book in advance to avoid disappointment and help us manage our capacity. Limited tickets will be available for walk-ins.

Under 18s are welcome to attend, if accompanied by an adult.
