Wednesday 28 June

LGBT+ at its best

Over 18s only

For our next Lates we are collaborating with Pride in London to bring you an LGBT-inspired evening of fabulousness and gaiety. 

Drag kings and queens will be sashaying around the Museum while we explore animal sex habits, sex counselling, the history of sexual orientation, walking like your opposite gender, and so much more.

Plus, all the regular Lates highlights are waiting for you to enjoy, including live music and the best silent disco in town.

NB. For one night only most of our toilets will be gender neutral.

Science Museum Lates are adults-only, after-hours theme nights that take place in the Museum on the last Wednesday of every month. Each entry in this hugely popular ongoing series of events centres on a different theme: from sex to climate change, from big data to childhood.

See what we have planned for the coming months

Inspiring, enlightening and unbelievably good fun, Lates always draw a crowd, so we suggest you arrive early to ensure the best chance of getting in. Be advised that you may have to queue before a timed event.

Come along to a vocal extravaganza with London’s favourite gin-based harmony group, Gin and Harmonics. Set up in 2010, united by their love of a cappella and gin, they won the award for Outstanding Performance in the Voice Festival UK final in 2016, which they celebrated with, well, gin.
