Hermitage Gala Banquet will take place at the Winter Palace on 26 June 2021

The State Hermitage Museum invites you to attend the annual fundraising Gala Banquet at the Winter Palace on the 26th of June 2021. This magnificent celebration, worthy of the Russian Tsars, attracts patrons of the arts and friends of the Hermitage from all over the world. On this day, Friends of the museum and patrons from different countries of the world, including famous artists and actors, politicians and major businessmen, arrive in St. Petersburg.

The programme will include a walk through the Hermitage galleries, when they are closed to the public, unique performances created especially for this evening, and an elegant dinner in the setting of a spectacular Royal Ball. The guests of the Gala will be the first spectators of the Russian-Austrian project FLORA , which combines literature, theatre, and visual arts in the museum. Outstanding world writers, actors, and musicians will help visitors experience the Hermitage’s masterpieces in a totally new way.

To guarantee your safety the Hermitage museum will organize the banquet complying with all the prevailing rules and limitations dictated by the pandemic. The event will be very exclusive and we ask you to confirm your attendance as soon as possible because, unfortunately, the number of guests will have to be significantly reduced.

We also ask each guest to either be vaccinated against COVID-19 or have a negative current PCR test to ensure their own safety and the safety of other guests. We enthusiastically await your arrival at our grand Gala!

Dress code: black tie, ball gown
