Lates: Life Upgraded

Wednesday 25 March

We will be exploring life enchancing technology with synthetic biology

For 18s and over

This month we’ll be delving into human enhancement in an interactive festival that explores the latest advances in biological technology directly with the scientists developing them.

There will be talks on mind-enhancing drugs and regrowing organs, as well as all the regular highlights.

Stay tuned for more details of what's on at this month's Lates.


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.
