Lates: The Next Big Thing

Wednesday 24 June

Join us as we bid to discover The Next Big Thing!

For 18s and over

This month we’re collaborating with the Royal Society as they bid to discover The Next Big Thing!

We’ll be taking a look at what booze does to our brains, why diamonds are more than just a gemstone and if robots can evolve. Experts will also be discussing the toilet habits of extinct animals and how ants can help us avoid information overload.

Plus all the regular highlights of live music, Punk Science comedy show and the best silent disco in town.

Full details of the night's events will be published soon.

The Science Museum’s Lates is a free night for adults that takes place on the last Wednesday of the month. Lates have a different theme each month, spanning issues as far apart as sex, alcohol and climate change – see what we have planned for the coming months.

Please be aware that Lates is incredibly popular, which means you may have to queue before a timed event. We suggest you arrive early to ensure you have the best possible chance of getting in.
