Kate Rolfe, Head of Events, National Gallery explained: “The National Gallery is delighted to have Table Talk on our approved supplier list. We’re looking forward to collaborating with them over the coming years on our own and client events.”
Home to one of the most impressive collections of Western European paintings in the world, the National Gallery is a spectacular setting for breath-taking events.
