Drink and Dance at the Science Museum Lates

Once a month, the Science Museum stays open late for grown ups. They do grown-up versions of some of the shows they do for children doing the day, and they have themed talks and workshops. It sounds like fun. Let's go :).

I'm suggesting we join the queue at 18:30, as this usually means less queueing later. If you want to turn up later, these are the rendezvous points:

Planet Science, Ground Floor, 19:15

• Silent Disco, Third Floor, 20:05-20:10

• Outside ground floor lecture theatre, 20:20 (for the Punk Science Gameshow)

• And outside the main exit, 22:00 (for the pub)

I'll wear a straw summer hat, and carry a London Vegan Beerfest tote bag.

We'll go see Punk Science give their first ever gameshow at 20:30 (ground floor, £5)

Their blurb goes:

All the regular highlights of live music, a pub quiz, Punk Science comedy shows and the best silent disco in town at the Science Museums Lates with sponsor on Wednesday 30th July, 18.45 - 22.00.

The Science Museum’s Lates with sponsor is a free night for adults, no booking required, that takes place on the last Wednesday of the month. Lates are themed, spanning issues as far apart as sex, alcohol and climate change, but always contain 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, Lates regularly attracts over 3000 adults each night, with DJs and bars on three floors of the museum.

This late night is Brazil-themed includes workshops for making drums and maracas; the Punk Science show, a silent disco, a pub quiz, and more. As well as, you know, the whole Science Museum.

(There will not be food, so eat first and/or bring the proverbial vegan trail mix!)

    Thanks for coming everyone. It was great to see everyone. If there's one problem, it's that there's too much to see! It sounds like some of us missed an interesting discussion about sperm motility, for starters :).

      Do you mean about ten past 8? Some people went to the Ugly Animals talk, but I thought that you and ?Dee weren't going to that.

      I'm thinking that if I do this next time, I might suggest more wandering around the museum and fewer talks.

      As soon as I posted the queue started to move. We are just inside the front door waiting.

      Was good to meet you. This is the definitive study of half a million Dutch children that I mentioned. It shows unvaccinated children develop autism just as often as anyone else. (Not that there was ever any scientific evidence of a link.)­

    Hello, this will be my first vegan meet up event. How will I know where to find everyone? I aim to be there for 6.30pm. Thanks

      There'll be a group of us in the queue. I will wear a straw hat, a courier bag, and a vegan badge.

    This clashes with the monthly vegan meeting on vegantopia however I prefer the science museum so see u there.

    1 · July 28, 2014

    • Ian M.

      Both are always going to be on the last Wednesday of the month. But at least it's not clashing with a particularly scientific talk. (I deliberately didn't clash with last month's talk, which was from a transhumanist philosopher.)
