Talks & Events
Each exhibition and display will be accompanied by an exciting programme of talks, film screenings, activities and late events.
Join us for our next recording of BBC Radio 4's Four Thought at Somerset House, a series of talks that combine two of the trademark elements of Radio 4 - big ideas and evocative storytelling. Speakers take to the stage, to air their latest thinking on the trends, ideas, interests and passions that affect our culture and society.
Discover Tudor intrigue and Georgian Enlightenment, scientific curiosity and naval power, extravagant entertainments and 'the King's Shilling', as we lead you from the airy lightwells of graceful staircases to the atmospheric Deadhouse.
