Friday Lates

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 suitable for those over 18 years old.

Celebrate the softer side of transport at our next Friday Late. Drawing inspiration from our current exhibition Designology, we’re focusing on the fabric that makes up our city.

Join future trends forecaster and fashion designer Geraldine Wharry, for a look at why London is and always has been a leader in fashion. Dress for the city and create a bespoke bow or pin using fabric that represent London, then capture your style with a portrait drawn by illustrator Willa Gebbie. 

Hear from five architects working on the Crossrail project who will reveal the design story behind the new Elizabeth line stations. Explore the process of designing with the Capital’s iconic moquette fabric with menswear designer Annalisa M Atkinson, get inspired and print your own pocket square. Listen as Jenna Rossi-Camus, curator and exhibition designer, tells tales of fashion satires relating to transport. Then head to our Designology studio to see the unique woven textiles created as part of the Weaving Futures season, and meet the curators Philippa Brock and Samuel Plant Dempsey along with some of the season’s resident designers and weavers.

Enjoy all of the above and more, alongside curator led tours of our latest poster parade, exploring our vintage vehicles, exhibitions, cocktails, themed quiz and music.
