At our November Soane Late, you are invited to experience the Museum at its most glittering with a spectacular evening themed around our current exhibition Georgian Illuminations

With a drink in hand, join a series of spotlight talks throughout the evening including a Curatorial introduction to the exhibition, followed by an 'after hours' viewing of the exhibition itself, themed workshops in the Art Room, and the chance to see light artist Nayan Kulkarni's spectacular façade illuminations developed for the exhibition. 

This exhibition concentrates on specific, well-publicised light shows of the period and the impressive and the elaborate temporary architectural structures created for them, often designed by leading architects and artists, including Soane. Royal entertainments, pleasure gardens, national celebrations, and illuminations by Soane all feature, demonstrating that these ephemeral cultural practices were drivers of architectural and technological innovation.

What to expect

  • The whole Museum is yours to explore as you wander corridors lined by Sir John Soane’s books, sculptures, paintings and treasures.
