Learn about hidden histories at the museum with a fun and inclusive tour celebrating LGBT+ Month.
Join our expert museum guides Tallulah and Jonty for an after-hours tour focusing on objects in Sir John Soane’s extensive and eclectic collections which have an LGBT+ connection. From a bust of Sappho which sits in the Library Dining Room, to objects purchased by Soane from the notorious William Beckford (the one-time wealthiest man in England, described by his biographer as ‘the most scandalous connoisseur of hedonism in the modern world’) and persistent rumours about Soane’s own grandson Frederick, our guides have uncovered fascinating hidden histories relating to queer lives and identities. The tour ends with a complimentary drink.
Tickets are refundable up to 7 days before the event, after which point they are non-refundable or exchangeable.
