Late night

Learned Society Late: September

Fri 01 Sep 2017

Tickets are free but must be booked in advance, 18+ only, ID may be required. 

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 final late opening of the exhibition and an opportunity to view the display and explore the extra ordinary stories shared by the artists, fellows and performers.

The Learned Society of Extra Ordinary Objects invite you for one last big night out on the closing weekend of the exhibition with society fellows reading stories at the bar and a one-off musical performance by honorary fellows Heart and Soul. Celebrating that famous evening in 1966 when 'the Unknown Fellow' arrived at the club with Englands victorious World Cup winning football team and Motown greats Heart and Soul sang late into the wild, wild night.

Alongside the evening’s entertainment guests you'll be invited to 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.

Tickets are free but must be registered in advance, capacity may be limited at busy times.
