Science Museum Lates - Large Hadron Collider

The Science Museum’s Lates is a free night for adults that takes place on the last Wednesday of the month. January 2014's Lates majors on the Large Hadron Collider which currently forms the basis for an exhibition at the museum. Buried deep under the border between Switzerland and France, CERN’s Large Hadron Collider is the work of ten thousand men and women from across the globe, united in their quest to uncover the fundamental building blocks of our universe.

Lates typically includes a mix of science shows, a pub quiz, Punk Science comedy shows and the best silent disco in town (underneath real space rockets). Dubbed ‘drinking and thinking’ by visitors, it regularly attracts over 3000 adults each night, with DJs and bars on three floors of the museum.

Note that whilst entry to the museum for the event is free, some sections of it (such as the Large Hadron Collider exhibit) will attract an entry free. More info to follow...

Here's a clip of what to expect:

    Really pleased I finally got to go to a science museum late as it has been on my list of things I want to do for ages. Next time I will make a beeline for the silent disco!
    Thanks everyone for a nice night :-)

    Thanks for coming along everyone and sorry if Lates was a bit hit and miss. Apologies also if I was somewhat on the grumpy side...when I scheduled Lates, yesterday's diary was free...in the event corporate events during the day had rendered me needing my sofa rather than a frustrating night (albeit in good company!) trailing around the Science Museum!

    Sorry to jump in on an event conversation, but I was wondering if anybody in Watford Social had heard of the new 'LP Cafe' which is a Vinyl Music Cafe/Shop that opened in Watford High Street in November 2013. http://thelpcafe.com/ The Cafe holds music events that might be of interest to Watford Social Members - http://thelpcafe.com/events-2/ which is why I thought I would post this information here

    • Antony S.

      Louise - appreciate that you're trying to help by putting forward event suggestions - and a good suggestion it is - but please try and keep messages like this on the discussion board and keep posts within event pages relevant to that particular event. Important info on each event is communicated via the comments facility and it makes like difficult if this info gets lost amo

      January 22, 2014

    • Antony S.

      ...gets list amidst off topic chatter. Rest assured that if you post on the discussion board it will be seen by us and we will note it. Or just email myself or one of the other event organisers via their profile. Thanks for cooperating with this.

    Hi All. A couple of bits of housekeeping.

    1. We're going to meet between 630 and 645 outside South Kensington station and the head over to the museum as a group. Any late comers will need to find us in the museum. I can be contacted on[masked] (assuming I have reception inside!) If you are delayed or can't make it, please let me know so we don't wait around unnecessarily...

    2. In answer to the question below regarding payment, the event is actually free...yes, FREE! That said, there are a few bits that attract a cost if choose to do them - the Red Arrow Experience, the RAF Typhoon Experience and the Hidden Universe 3D. More info: http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/visitmuseum/plan_your_visit/lates.aspx

    • Antony S.

      Oops...good spot, Jess...yes, the Large Hadron Collider exhibit attracts £10 entry fee which looks payable on the night. But worth it as it's only there for a limited period...

      January 21, 2014

    • Jess

      It looks well worth a visit. As you say not there for long so it would be good to get in there. Look forward to catchin g you all at S Kensington :)

    What time are people planning on leaving Watford Junction to make this as trying to work out if I can get back from Wycombe to make it.

      It looks like a 1hour 20min trip from Watford Junction. So I'm guessing 5.10 or 5.15 to allow people to congregate? Wouldn't it be quicker for you to get a train into London and meet up there?

      1 · January 16, 2014

    • Jess

      Hi ya, I'm thinking of getting the train in Bushey, Think a friend is coming along too. Looking forward to it. Are we just paying when we are there?
