100 things to do for free

Celebrate our centenary year by joining us at some of our '100 things to do for free'


September 2019 marks 100 years since we opened our doors.

To say thank you to Londoners for a century of support we have free places on courses and events throughout the year. Join us to celebrate our diverse community of students, staff and partners. Free places include performances, shows, talks and courses that span the breadth of subjects at City Lit. Where places are limited you will need to book a free space via Eventbrite where indicated below, places are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

100 Portraits, until 15 December 2019, City Lit Gallery, 1-10 Keeley Street, London WC2B 4BA (open daily)
This exhibition shows our 100 Centenary portraits; a celebration of people who contribute to making City Lit special. The photographs offer an insight into the wide range of learning possible at City Lit, from the skills and knowledge that tutors offer to the many talents that students develop. 24 participants were invited to loan a piece of work for this inaugural exhibition to highlight the breadth and variety of skills accomplished in their subjects.
