Edward Burne-Jones Exhibition at Tate Britain
Thursday 22 November 2018

YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN US FOR A VISIT BY COACH TO THE EDWARD BURNE-JONES EXHIBITION AT TATE BRITAIN ON THURSDAY 22ND NOVEMBER 2018

Edward Burne-Jones (1833-98) was one of the great Victorian artists in a golden age of art. He was one of the last Pre-Raphaelites and brought imaginary worlds to life in his awe-inspiring paintings, stained glass windows and tapestries.

We are very pleased to have secured tickets for this prestigious exhibition at Tate Britain, the first retrospective of Burne-Jones’s work to be held in London for over 40 years. This ambitious and wide-ranging exhibition will bring together over 150 of his works, including all the major works from his four-decade career, depicting Arthurian knights, classical heroes and biblical angels. Spectacular large-scale paintings like ‘Love among the Ruins’  1870-73 and ‘The Wheel of Fortune’ 1883 will show his international impact, including at the 1889 Exposition Universelle when he emerged on the world stage as the leading light of symbolist art. Two rooms dedicated to his most famous narrative cycles will be shown together for the first time. These huge canvases are among his finest and best-loved works, telling the action-packed story of Perseus and the dreamlike fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty.

The cost of this visit is £57.00 per person to include return coach travel, driver’s gratuity, morning refreshments on arrival at Tate Britain, a private one-hour introductory lecture, an inclusive buffet lunch and timed-entry tickets for you to enjoy the exhibition. Reduced rates for Tate Members of £24.60 or Art Fund Members of £33.60 will apply for those of you who are members. However, you will be asked to produce your valid membership card on the day, otherwise you will be charged the full price.

We will depart from Johnson’s Yard at 7.15 am and the Old Sils at 7.45 am. On our return we will leave Tate Britain at 4.30 pm to arrive back in Solihull for approximately 7.00 pm.

Members have already been contacted. Interested non-members should use our enquiry facilties.
