Join us for a candlelit evening to celebrating all things literary with pop-up poetry readings, book displays, and more.
Sir John Soane was an avid book collector and had a vast personal collection of works which he kept at his home and studio in Lincoln Inn Fields. Our Archivist and Head of Library Services will present a display of some of Soane’s favourite books, rarely on show to the public, in the Museum's elegant Drawing Rooms.
With a glass of prosecco in hand, you can also enjoy pop-up readings by Robert Seatter, Head of History at the BBC, from his latest book The House of Everything: Poems Inspired by Sir John Soane’s Museum, in the very spaces these poems were first imagined.
This event is now sold out.
Timed entry at 6, 6.30, 7.30 and 8pm
