People who have saved this event:


Secret Charter is a star-studded art sale to raise much needed funds for the arts at The Charter School North Dulwich. It has attracted the support of a vast art community from near and far. Tracey Emin, Antony Gormley, Julian Opie and Gary Hume are just some of the big art names taking part.


The exhibition will take place at the Dulwich Picture Gallery (our venue partners) on Monday 15th October.

Secret Charter offers the chance to acquire an original postcard-sized work of art produced specially for us by international and local artists, illustrators, designers, celebrities and art students. Just £40 buys you a postcard voucher which will be randomly matched to a piece of artwork in the sale. 

Tracey Emin, Antony Gormley, Julian Opie and Gary Hume are just some of the big art names taking part, while celebrity contributors span the spectrum from Jeremy Corbyn MP, actor Hugh Grant to TV presenter James Corden. Young art students from the school will sit alongside some of the most celebrated names in contemporary culture. 

A representative selection of the artworks will be previewed online for the two weeks leading up to the Secret Charter exhibition. Actor James Nesbitt will be hosting the event.

Alongside the main event, the exhibition will also display a small selection of spectacular artworks by named artists taking part in our online auction. Some of the confirmed artists in the auction are Tracey Emin, Gary Hume, Alessandro Raho, Maggi Hambling, Michael Petry, John Keane, Richard Deacon, Emma Tennant and Edmund de Waal.
