You probably know by now that we’re big on PERi-PERi, but what you might not know is we’re big on art too. 

In fact, in every single one of our restaurants, we display a unique collection of original art, all the way from South Africa itself! Outside of Africa, we have the world’s largest collection of contemporary Southern African art, with more than 17,000 pieces globally by more than 260 different artists. Here the UK, we’ve got over 7,300 pieces of South African art hanging in our 370 restaurants. 

To support emerging artists in South Africa, we work with partners on the ground who work closely to develop, nurture and support them.
This year for the very first time, we are sponsoring a unique art exhibition at Somerset House, the 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair where they’ll be showcasing works by four amazing Southern African artists, whose work is also featured in our restaurants. 

The artists have flown over specially for the event, and we’ll also be taking them to see their art in our restaurants while they’re here. 

So next time you are in our restaurants take a look around our Open Gallery. To find out more about Nando’s and art, visit
