27 January Soane Literary Late

Regular price £25.00

Join us for a candlelit evening to celebrate all things literature with pop up poetry readings, book displays, and more.   

Sir John Soane was an avid book collector and had a vast personal collection of works which he kept at his home and studio in Lincoln Inn Fields. Join our Archivist and Head of Library Services in the elegant Museum Drawing Rooms for a display of some of Soane’s favourite books, rarely on show to the public.

With a glass of prosecco in hand you can also attend pop up readings by Robert Seatter, Head of History at the BBC, from his latest book The House of Everything: Poems Inspired by Sir John Soane’s Museum in the very spaces these poems were first imagined.

  • The whole Museum is yours to explore as you wander corridors lined by Sir John Soane’s books, sculptures, paintings and treasures.
  • We encourage photography at these events as the Museum is at its most awe-inspiring after dark as its vast collections are bathed in shadow and light by the many candles lit throughout.
  • Admission includes a glass of wine or prosecco in the Library Dining Room where Soane would have spent many evenings reading by the fireplace surrounded by his book collection.
  • Tickets available for arrival at either 18:00, 18:30, 19:30 or 20:00.

Your confirmation email serves as your ticket.

Tickets are refundable up to 7 days before the event, after which point they are non-refundable or exchangeable.
