July First Thursdays



On the first Thursday of every month over 170 galleries and museums in east London are open till 9pm with free events, talks, exhibitions and private views.  

Explore east London’s galleries, artist run spaces and studios on the interactive map or pocket map available at each participating gallery. You can also download the map as a PDF here.

Each month check out our top 5 exhibitions, join our free art bus, or follow one of our recommended walking tours from leading curators and writers.
