Rolf Paints... The Diamond Jubilee

Confirmed for Tuesday 5 June on BBC One at 6.30pm-7.30pm

Tuesday 5 June



In celebration of HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Rolf Harris joins Anneka Rice and a team of 60 inspiring artists as they try to capture 60 years of royal history on canvas.

Rolf will be throwing open the doors of his specially-constructed Pop Up Art School to artists of all ages and abilities, as for one day only they set up their easels and pay tribute to The Queen. With Rolf as their mentor the artists will be able to pick up tips and techniques from the man who has become one of Britain’s favourite artists and entertainers.

Joining Rolf is amateur artist Anneka Rice. Anneka has been out and about collecting stories and meeting people who have their own memories of The Queen's reign. Not only will she be painting, but she’ll also face a huge challenge: as soon as the artists put down their brushes she will work through the night to transform the venue into a free Pop Up Art Gallery, ready for the public to view the paintings over the Jubilee weekend.
