Lates: The Age of Churchill

Wednesday 29 July

Join us as we step back into the 1930s, 40s and 50s.

For 18s and over

This month we’ll be stepping back into the 1930s, 40s and 50s as we focus on the themes of our Churchill’s Scientists exhibition.

We’ll be exploring the stories and characters relating to British science during and immediately after the Second World War.

This night includes live music and dancing from the period and interactive workshops. Plus all the regular highlights of live music, Punk Science comedy show and the best silent disco in town.

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.
