Soane Lates: Spotlight on Soane

A dramatically-lit Late on 27 March, casting light on the stories behind the Soane.

The Museum is at its most awe-inspiring after dark, its vast, eclectic collections lit spectacularly by spotlights.

At 'spotlight talks' around the Museum, our expert guides will shed further light on this intriguing place as they present pop-up talks on their favourite artefacts, works of art and stories. 

The whole Museum is yours to explore and soak up the atmosphere. We encourage photography at these events, and admission includes a glass of wine in the South Drawing Room.
