RA Lates presents ‘A Hockney Happening’: a night-long celebration of all things David Hockney from the early 1960s to the present day.

Think LA swimming pools, colourful Yorkshire landscapes, Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell portraits, photo collages and Walt Whitman poetry as we lead you through Hockney’s world.

Experiences on the night include:

‘A Bigger Splash’ party with Savage Disco

Polaroid photo studio

Immersive installation of Mr and Mrs Ossie Clarke and Percy

iPad drawing

Hockney face painting

Speed portrait dating

Life drawing based on Hockney’s Illustrations for Fourteen Poems from C.P. Cavafy

Plus film screenings, activities, talks, street food stalls, cocktails and more.

Dress code: David Hockney, with prizes on the night for the most convincing Hockney. See our Pinterest board for inspiration.

We ask that guests arrive before 9pm to guarantee receipt of the complimentary cocktail. Please note the Ground Floor areas will close at 11.45pm, the Fine Rooms and Hockney Portraits exhibition will close at 10.30pm.
