Mayfair Art Weekend, originally scheduled for 26th-28th June, has been rescheduled in light of the continuing coronavirus lockdown.
A statement from the organisers reads: “After careful consideration and in light of ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns, we have made the decision to postpone Mayfair Art Weekend to the autumn.
“Mayfair Art Weekend will now take place on Friday 25th, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th September 2020 where we look forward to welcoming you back to the extensive range of art exhibitions Mayfair has to offer.
“Like many galleries and art institutions across the world, the galleries of Mayfair are working harder than ever to bring art to us at home through digital means. As ever, we want to share the best of Art in Mayfair so stay tuned for our favourite virtual exhibitions, podcasts, online film screenings and more via our monthly newsletter, social media channels and our What’s On page.
“We look forward to seeing you in September.”
