Her Royal Highness will tour the gallery and meet artists whose works are in the exhibition.

The Duchess will see how Turner Contemporary engages with the local community in the Clore Learning Studio, where she will meet local school children involved in our art projects and meet a group of young women who have been working with local artist Felicity Allen. HRH will then attend a brief reception and meet staff and supporters of the gallery.

Turner Contemporary will be closed until 1pm on Wednesday 11 March. 
The gallery will be open 1 - 6pm. Admission is free

The Duchess of Cambridge will also visit Resort Studios, Cliftonville, Margate. The Duchess will view an exhibition featuring photomontages of local personalities and meet artists in residence to hear about their work with communities within Cliftonville.
