Give Me Your Hand
This poetical stroll through the National Gallery of London by Paul Durcan will run from March 7 to April 1.
This special engagement features Dearbhla Molloy and Dermot Crowley as they take audiences on a virtual "stroll" through London's National Gallery-discovering afresh the Museum's masterpieces through the poetic imagination of Irish writer Paul Durcan.
