Late night openings at museums and galleries are now a firmly established part of London's cultural scene. The Science Museum's monthly shindig remains one of the best and most popular. Queues can stretch round the block close to opening time.
Simply turn up, walk in for free, grab a glass of wine and enjoy the world-beating displays and live entertainment without the normal ruckus of children running about.
Tonight's Late is themed around the future, looking ahead to what we might expect from science, engineering and technology. Sideshows include the prophecies of the Jetsons, a molecular gastronomy workshop, a (pretend) pregnant man and, somewhat contra-theme, a recreation of sounds from the Great Exhibition of 1851. Long-time Science Museum Lates mainstays such as the silent disco, speed dating and the science quiz will also take place.

Science Museum Lates, 28 March, 6.45-10pm. Entrance is free.
