Plan A Visit

Award-winning illustrator Nick Ellwood, whose wonderfully mischievous drawings feature in the Painted Hall Family Trail, will have an exhibition from March – September 2021, Mischief and Misadventure: Exploring the history of the Old Royal Naval College.

Original artworks and illustrations from his booklets, inspired by the art in the Painted Hall, will be on display, featuring tales of astronomers, architects, royals, gods and goddesses and figures from the Navy.

Running alongside the exhibition will be drawing workshops for children and adults, interactive and digital demonstrations and the launch of a new Old Royal Naval College activity book available from the Painted Hall shop.
