Friday Lates

People at a Friday Late workshop

Explore the museum after hours at one of our Friday Late events. We keep the doors open until 10pm, and often give you a sneak peak of our newest exhibition. With music, bars, hot food, talks, quizzes, and craft activities, the Friday Late is great way to discover the Museum.

Please note that our Friday Lates are adult events only suitable for those aged 18 and over.

Continuing our celebration of women designers through time, we turn our focus to the Eighties, a decade of contrasts that shaped contemporary society. Revealing its passionate protests, underground, and pop-culture, in our series of talks, tours and workshops.

Relive the nostalgia and power-up your competitive side at our retro arcade. Indulge in independent makers' stalls and workshops, including live illustration, tarot readings, and crafting 80's accessories. Try on a bold 80's look with Urban Decay then capture the night in our photo booth.

Journey through a photographic archive of rave culture and grassroots activism. Glimpse into the Docklands past, before it changed forever with the DLR opening in 1987. And learn what women wore whilst seizing control - in the boardroom, in the bedroom and beyond.
