A night at the National Portrait Gallery

I’m sure most of you have heard of the National Portrait Gallery and most have probably set foot in its exhibitions just at the top of Trafalgar Square but I bet you didn’t know that it had its own event space that’s pretty darn cute.

Last week I had the chance to attend the launch of the Secret Garden outdoor event space at the NPG. I know what you’re thinking, “it’s highs of 13 degrees outside, summers over babe” but alas it was a beautiful event and the space is definitely perfect for a corporate drinks or gathering as it oozed charm, I could even actual picture it as the perfect place to announce an engagement if you had that kind of money. I must say I was a bit nervous before going as I know evening like this tend to have minimal drinks and 100 people standing at the doors waiting to snatch up canapés like animals but it was honestly such a lovely event.


I got a flower crown, endless prosecco, nabbed most of the canapés and got to watch a fab live band and hula hooping girl so what’s not to love. The space itself was honestly transformed by the Simon J Lycett florals and if there’s anything us instagrammers love more than a table full of food, its a flower arch let me tell you which made it double annoying when these couple of women decided to sit on the most instagrammable bench of the whole evening to have a casual chat….NO BABES that’s actually the equivalent of a photo booth at these events…we make them move..I’m not ashamed.

So there you go, a random but beautiful evening at the National Portrait Gallery, if you want to see what else I get up to then follow me on @belleofbrunch on instagram!
