Join Sky Arts and Sir Lenny Henry to set a new Guinness World Record 

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the competition ‘Portrait Artist of the Year’, Sky Arts wanted to go big! So much so that they have teamed up with Sir Lenny Henry to bring the show to life in-person and set a new Guinness World Record for the largest number of people painting a portrait simultaneously.

Sounds exciting huh! The record attempt will take place on 28th October from 2-5pm, where 200 members of the public will have the opportunity to paint the famous actor, writer and comedian at Lindley Hall in central London.

Book your ticket via Eventbrite –

Can’t make it? Fear not, the event will also be live-streamed for you to take part virtually. Get your paintbrushes at the ready!

Address: Lindley Hall, 80 Vincent Square, London SW1P 2PB
