Interested in being a spectator?


The heats of the next series of Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year (2019) will be filmed once again at the Wallace Collection. Filming will take place over 8 days from Tuesday 24th April to Thursday 3rd May 2018, not including the weekend.

We’d love you to come along to these filmed events but please note, while they continue to be open to the public, due to increasing popularity the Portrait heats will now be ticketed. Morning (10am-12.30pm) or afternoon (1.30pm-5pm) tickets will be available to book (*), free of charge, from early March at

These will be issued on a first come, first served basis. It’s possible that returns may be made available on the day. Ticket reservations are limited to two per booking.


*By booking tickets people agree to our terms and conditions, which include granting permission for themselves and any children in attendance to be filmed, and for this footage to be included in the series or in promotional material. NB: Any ticket holders who do not arrive within half an hour of their allotted morning or afternoon session accept that their tickets may be released for public turning up on the day. Smartphone photography is allowed but we ask that people are respectful of sitters, artists, presenters and judges, and do not distract them by requesting selfies with them.
