Lates takes place on the last Wednesday of the month, 18.45–22.00. Entry is free

Lates

Wednesday 27 August, 18.45-22.00
At this month's Lates we discover all about hedonism, touching on sex, drugs and rock and roll

This month Lates is all the science of hedonism – sex, drugs and music – as we team up with Guerilla Science!

 Join us as we look at cures for hangovers, body mapping, if gender is an illusion and the taste of music. We’ll also have another quirky speed dating session, but this time it’s a sensory speed dating festival.

Plus all the regular highlights of live music, a pub quiz, Punk Science comedy shows and the best silent disco in town.

About Lates

The Science Museum’s Lates with MasterCard 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.

Dubbed ‘drinking and thinking’ by visitors, Lates regularly attracts over 3000 adults each night, with DJs and bars on three floors of the museum.
