Christie's is celebrating 40 years at its South Kensington, London location with a series of open evenings.

This summer the auction house is opening its doors on the first Tuesday evening of every month for a series of talks and exhibitions, as well as a drink or two.

Starting from June 2, visitors can hear talks on interior design and art, and see exhibitions of forthcoming auctions in the fields of travel science, 19th Century European art, and Islamic artefacts.

Christie's opened its South Kensington salesroom in 1975 for its lower-priced auctions. The biggest sales continue to take place at its St James's headquarters.

Christie’s South Kensington chairman, Nic McElhatton, comments: "With the V&A, Science Museum, Natural History Museum, and a host of other major institutions a stone’s throw from Old Brompton Road, I describe Christie’s SW7 salerooms as the alternative museum.

"Every week there are different sales on view, open to everyone, and not only can you come and be inspired, but unlike the museums you can bid for and buy the exhibits from £500."
