Terrace Rooms

Join the fellows of the Learned Society of Extra Ordinary Objects in their temporary HQ at Somerset House for an evening fuelled by the spirit of storytelling through design.

The second in a series of special late openings of the exhibition will be an opportunity to explore the extra ordinary stories and objects shared by the artists, fellows and performers.

Jasleen Kaur and Carl Clerkin will be cooking up a special Chick Pea Curry in celebration of the Learned Society's early staple meal concocted by founding fellows during their cross-contintental voyages in the early 1900s. This vegetarian friendly dish will be available free of charge for attendees. 

Alongside the evening’s entertainment guests will be invited enjoy a couple of complimentary drinks from the Royal Society’s Famous Gin Bar and Roofer’s ‘Round the Back’ vending machine, installed for the first time within the exhibition.

Due to the serving of alcohol this event is strictly 18+, ID may be required. 

As this is a free ticketed event we operate on an "over-booking" policy, capacities may be capped with restricted access at busy times.
