Canada Club Salon with Marc Mayer, CEO of the National Gallery of Canada
We are pleased to announce the inaugural Canada Club Salon, which will meet on Friday, 2 November, 2018.
The Canada Club Salon aims to bring together Canadians and those interested in Canada in a relaxed environment for drinks, food, music, art and (most importantly) interesting conversation with your fellow Members.
This edition of the Salon will be held at the Ned, which is housed in the Lutyens-designed former headquarters of British Midland Bank in the City of London.
Marc Mayer, CEO & Director of the National Gallery of Canada, has kindly agreed to speak at the Salon about the Gallery’s recent acquisitions and Canadian art’s current place in the world.
Tickets are £85.00 each.
A friendly reminder – to buy tickets you must be a Member in good standing. If you have not already done so, please renew your membership prior to purchasing tickets.
This is a business attire event (although creativity is always welcomed).
