FAQs

I can’t paint – can I still have a great night?

No experience at all is needed to unleash your creativity with PopUp Painting. We have painted with over ten thousand guests since 2013, and the vast majority haven’t been artists. Head to our gallery or reviews to see for yourself.

Does PopUp Painting provide everything I will need?

We provide everything you’ll need to create your own masterpiece. That includes paint, brushes, canvases, aprons, palette, and guidance. All you need bring is your imagination. Our events take place in bars and restaurants, so you can always get a glass of wine to help lubricate your creative process.

How and when should I book a ticket?

The best way to book is through our events calendar. Our events tend to sell out in the last 72 hours building up to the event, so try to book the week before if possible. We cannot usually accept payment on the door.

I’m looking to bring a group of friends with me – do you offer group discounts? 

We can offer group discounts on groups of 5-6 and above. A group booking tool is coming to the website soon.

We can also offer student discounts on week night events, subject to availability. Just send us an email at info@popuppainting.com along with the number of people you want to book for and which events you are interested in and we will see what we can do.

Please note we cannot offer discounts retrospectively.

I’ve booked my place and can’t wait to come along – what do I need to prepare and when should I arrive?

All you need to bring with you is your imagination. We’ll have you on our guest-list, so no need to print out any order confirmation emails. You should aim to arrive 10-15 minutes before the start time. If you’re coming with a large group and you have booked separately, please send us an email to info@popuppainting.com to let us know – we will try to seat you together.

I’d like to organise my own Private Party, Fundraising or Corporate Event – how can I do this?

Firstly, take a look at our Private Parties, Fundraising or Corporate Event page to find out a little bit more. Then write to us at info@popuppainting.com – we’ll need to know when you would like your event, any restrictions on where, and the number of guests you would like to book for.

Do you do gift vouchers?

We do! See here for our full offering.

What is PopUp Painting’s Cancellation and Refund Policy?

We schedule 35+ events each month right around the country, and sometimes one or two of these might need to be cancelled for reasons of logistics, sickness or low bookings. Where this happens we aim to cancel with more then 48 hours, or two working days, notice. You will be entitled to either a transfer of your tickets or a full refund.

Guests are welcome to transfer or cancel their tickets with more than 72 hours notice of an event. Between 72-24 hours notice we are able to transfer tickets to events of the same value, but not offer refunds.

Is food and drink included? Can I bring my own?

Some of our events include a glass of wine or antipasti. Please see the individual event for details. Food and drink is available for purchase in all of our venues, and you are not able to bring your own.
