The Royal Ballet School, White Lodge Open Day
This coming Saturday 13th June, the Royal Ballet Lower School based at White Lodge in Richmond Park hold their annual Open Day.
It’s a chance to watch the students dancing outside on the lawn, which they do all afternoon.
Also well worth a visit is the historic Grade 1 listed building, not usually open to the public – guided tours are offered throughout the afternoon by the teachers and now that the redevelopment is almost completed there is a lot more to see, including the museum with interactive exhibits.
There are stalls selling champagne, teas & cakes, ice-cream and memorabilia.
The School encourages you to picnic on the lawn and a temporary car park is established very close to the entrance (so you don’t need to park further away in one of the main car parks).
The gates are open from 11 am, with the official opening at midday, and goes on until 5pm.
The local weather forecast is set fair for Saturday – very warm and mostly sunny. Perfect picnic weather in a perfect picnic spot !
