Join us after dark for this Soane Late as we delve deeper into the stories and design of this unique Museum and discover how contemporary artists continue to be inspired by it. 

Co-curated by Artist-in-Residence Ella Baron, there will be a display of Ella's drawings in the South Drawing Room as well as an opportunity to hear her discuss her residency, and her work as a political cartoonist and graphic novelist. The whole Museum, beautifully illuminated, will be yours to explore as you wander corridors lined by Sir John Soane’s vast collections including works by Canaletto, Turner and Hogarth.

  • We encourage photography at these events and if you are sharing your images on social media, tag us @soanemuseum on Instagram and X or use the hashtag #PhototheSoane, and we'll share your shots to our Stories.
  • Admission includes a glass of wine in the Library Dining Room where Sir John Soane would have entertained his own guests.
  • Tickets are available for arrival at either 18:00, 18:30, 19:30 or 20:00. The event finishes at 9.15pm.

This event is now sold out.

About the Artist at Soane Residency 

The Drawing Office was where Soane’s draftsmen and apprenticeships worked up his celebrated projects. Just as Soane supported the next generation of architectural talent, the opening of the Drawing Office in May 2023 marked the beginning of a new residency programme at the Soane. Two three-month residents are hosted each year (in the Spring and the Autumn). Our resident artists for 2024 will be announced in the spring.
