Non-members Varnishing Day

Today was non-members varnishing day, when those who have entered the Summer Exhibition come to see where their works have been hung.   It begins with a church service when we stop the traffic, process down Piccadilly led by a steel band, and attend a church service in St. James’s.   It must be one of the more secular occasions of the church year, conducted with vim by Lucy Winkett.   Then everyone goes back to the RA to eat strawberries, judge the hang, and hear who has won the prizes.
