We’re proud to be the media partner for Estuary, the Museum of London Docklands’ tenth anniversary exhibition, which opens on 17 May. The exhibition brings together the work of 12 artists, each of whom has been inspired by that wide-open space where the Thames meets the sea. This Saturday, you get a chance to explore the exhibition while enjoying live entertainment, food and drink, and a quiz at the museum’s Cockles & Muscles late opening event.
As well as access to Estuary, you can also hear from urban sociologist Dr Alex Rhys-Taylor, who’ll offer a mouthwatering journey through the history of British seafood. Then you can try some via pop-up fish restaurants, with contributions from the Billingsgate Seafood School and legendary East End seafood stall Tubby Isaacs. The evening’s live music will be curated by Mercury-prize-nominated artist Sam Lee and the Nest Collective.
Londonist Quiz: We’ll also be putting on one of our fiendish quizzes, themed around the River Thames. Find us up in the third floor gallery in good time for an 8pm start.
Museum of London Docklands Cockles & Muscles Late is on Saturday 18 May 2013, 7-9.30pm, tickets £7. Nearest station is West India Quay.
