Friday 13 February, 7-10pm

Our valentine’s Late London returns and, in honour of Mr.Holmes, we’re rejecting convention on the eve of the romantic day and embracing London’s bohemian soul.

Event highlights:

Trans-siberian Marching Band performances
8.30 & 9.20pm
With riotous high energy this 13 piece Balkan Brass ensemble (Rich Mix, Bestival, Secret Garden Party) will unleash their borderless bag of musical styles into the museum galleries. Accompanied by circus performances and with dancefloor space enough to throw you best bohemian shapes.

Artistic installation: Desire Lines installation
7-9.45pm
Installation artist Kirsty Harris (Battersea Arts Centre, Southbank Centre) will run a participatory art work inspired by bohemian desires and wanderings.

Absinthe: the bohemian tipple
Session running every 30mins from 7.15pm
Join Distillnation to imbibe all their spiritual knowledge about the ‘Green Fairy’. Thought to be dangerously addictive and psychoactive, absinthe has historically been a popular drink among artists and writers. 

Chalkboard Philosophy workshop
7-9.45pm
These days everyone’s a Chalkboard Philosopher! Add your own life mantra, motto, witticism, to our collection on the night.

The Real Sherlock Holmes
8.30-9pm
Join author of the Real Sherlock Holmes, Angela Buckley, to hear about Jerome Caminada of the Manchester City Police who may have been a real-life inspiration for the character of Sherlock Holmes

With drop in bohemian life drawing from London Drawing using Cowling + Wilcox materials to indulge your inner artist and see if you can call yourself a true Bohemian with our Bohemian lifestyle checklist.

Plus galleries by twilight, the chance to see Sherlock Holmes after hours and late night bars.
