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 fifteen 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.

What COVID-Secure measures does PopUp Painting have in place?

Please see our full  COVID-Secure page here.

Do I need to bring a bag?

As a pop-up we aren’t able to bring bags with us for everybody to our events. If you want to cover your painting you may want to bring a large bag (to fit a 16×20″ canvas).

However, we don’t think you’ll need one! We use fast drying acrylic paint – so it should be dry like a hard plastic within 10-15 minutes of you stopping painting – perfect for carrying!

How and when should I book a ticket?

The best way to book is through our events calendar. We cannot usually accept payment on the door. If you’re having trouble viewing our calendar we have a backup on Eventbrite.

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 or Corporate Event page to find out a little bit more. We are also able to run Online Parties. 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 sure do! They make a great, original gift. Please see here for our full offering.

What is PopUp Painting’s Cancellation and Refund Policy?

Please see our full policy on our Terms and Conditions page, here.

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

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

I’d love to work with PopUp Painting – how can I apply?

Please take a look at popuppainting.com/jobs. All application forms and CVs will need to be sent to recruitment@popuppainting.com.

If you’re looking to collaborate as a partner venue or promotional partner, please also drop us an email at info@popuppainting.com.

Can I bring my children?

As our events take place in bars and restaurants, then events generally operate an 18+ policy. Partner venues that we consider child-friendly are as follows:  Urban Meadow (Bayswater); Horniman at Hays (London Bridge).  Other venues may be appropriate but need to be checked on a case by case basis, by contacting us at info@popuppainting.com.

Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult and both the child and the responsible adult must buy tickets. Sadly, we do not advise children between the ages of 6 months and 10 years attend our events.


Our fully accessible partner venues are marked with a ♿ on our Affiliates page.

We aim to accommodate carers wherever possible if you require accompanying. Please write to us at info@popuppainting.com so that we can make sure there is space for you and your carer.
