The Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum is full of extraordinary artworks, and we are celebrating and encouraging the act of creativity in this special event, with music, workshops, crafts and more. Why not make it a really memorable day and pre-book an Afternoon Tea on our Terrace, overlooking the sea.
