Charles Russell Speechlys is delighted to announce that it has become a  major corporate partner of Somerset House, supporting the Terrace Room exhibitions series.

James Carter, Charles Russell Speechlys’ managing partner, said:

“Somerset House is an iconic London landmark and leading centre for contemporary culture and we are delighted to support them through this long term partnership which will see us sponsor a series of free public exhibitions in the Terrace Rooms. These exhibitions will provide opportunities for a diverse group of exhibitors to showcase their talents and will further open up the world of art and culture to a varied audience, from the seasoned art lover to the first time visitor.”
