The hugely popular gallery has organised its exhibits into four themed wings and the festival follows suit, on a chronological basis.

First up is Futurist Friday, then Surrealist Saturday, Abstract Sunday and finally Minimalist Monday.

As well as the art itself - and there’s plenty of new stuff to go along with the re-organisation - the Long Weekend features live performances in both the day and night, from big names such as John Cage and Courtney Pine.
