The National Portrait Gallery

Its open late - until 9pm on Thursday & Friday and its free. The Portrait Award Exhibition is on until the 18th and is well worth seeing. However even when that is gone there is still something for everyone.

I'm thinking of taking the young people one evening after school...tempting them with the following portraits:

- a painting of Tinie Tempah (Patrick Chukwuemeka Okogwu)
- a photograph of Gok Wan
- a video of David Beckham sleeping
    And if that doesn't work perhaps various portraits of JK Rowling and Gandalf (Ian McKellen) might or Julian Opie's cartoon style on canvas or animatedly breathing and blinking...

    I may have to make up a Gallery Treasure Trail...
