Award-winning illustrator Nick Ellwood, whose wonderfully mischievous drawings feature in the Painted Hall Family Trail, has an exhibition in the Visitor Centre from May – October 2021, 500 Years of Mischief & Mayhem in Greenwich.

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.
