The Christmas season is upon us, and here at The Lightbox, we have lots of exciting things planned!

Jo and Sam find themselves in Woking by Olive & Stavros Theatre
Join us for a rehearsed reading of this brand-new play by James Woolf.

When millennials Jo and Sam meet at The Lightbox, they find they have more to discuss than art. But will they stay together as a couple when the world around them is falling apart? Can they find meaning in Woking when it’s in such short supply everywhere else?

"Jo and Sam Find Themselves in Woking" is a heart-warming comedy that’s not afraid to tackle the topics that concern us most.

Marilyn Scott Farewell Fundraising Party
We are delighted to invite you to a farewell party for outgoing Lightbox Director Marilyn Scott who is stepping down at the end of November. Marilyn will move into full-time consultancy in the arts and heritage sector, using her experience gained during a prestigious career with a variety of renowned cultural organisations including The Lightbox gallery and museum, The Science Museum and The Victoria & Albert Museum.

All proceeds from the party will go towards The Marilyn Scott Bursary – a new fund managed by The Lightbox to support early-career arts and heritage professionals to enter the profession and to develop their skills and experience. The fund will be particularly focused on encouraging diversity and inclusion within the museum and gallery workforce.

Art History Talks: Sandra Blow RA
In this talk, Melanie discusses Sandra Blow's career. Blow was an English abstract painter, one of the pioneers of the British abstract movement of the 1950s. Blow's works are large-scale, colourful abstract paintings, and collages. This talk gives more personal insights than our usual talks as Sandra Blow was one of Melanie's relatives.
