Wayne Hemingway MBE, the brains behind the wildly popular Vintage Festivals, is a designer with many strings to his bow. After founding the iconic label Red or Dead with his wife Gerardine when they were in their teens, they went on to set up the multi-disciplinary HemingwayDesign. In 2015 he turned his attention to London’s transport staff and created a new uniform for them. In conversation with Robert Elms, writer and broadcaster at BBC London, he shares the inspirations behind the design, and the challenges he faced designing for such a large work force.

Late Debates 

We will also host three end of theme Late Debate events. These symposia-style events will focus on the particular topics and themes that have been explored in the studio over the past months and will feature invited speakers, panel discussions and workshops. Audiences and visitors will be encouraged to get as involved as possible, and will leave each event with a greater understanding of the complexity behind making design decisions for public transport in London.

London. A city defined not only by the red buses, black cabs and Tube trains recognised the world over, but also for the 31 million journeys made every day across its network.

Every Journey Matters – but what matters to you? Join us at London Transport Museum for the launch of our Late Debate – our newest late night event. We’re inviting some of the finest minds behind the design of the network that keeps us moving to share, discuss and debate their ideas with you. Good design, data, accessibility, wayfinding and growing passenger numbers are just some of the hot topics to be explored on the night.

Architect Charles Holden was commissioned by London Underground in the early 1930s to design a number of stations for the Piccadilly line. Widely regarded as fine examples of British Modernism, his tour explores the Holden style, looking at how all aspects of a busy Tube station were dealt with by design. Stations visited include Sudbury Town, Alperton, Park Royal and Acton Town. The tour also includes a brief excursion into the 1920s and 30s Hanger Hill (Haymills) estate near Park Royal. Meeting point information will be sent out with tickets.
