Enjoy Late Night London At London Transport Museum's Friday Late

Londonist is proud media partner to London Transport Museum's Transported by Design season.

Explore London Transport Museum's latest exhibition, Night Shift, which will share its opening night with the museum’s Friday Late extravaganza.

The museum is celebrating all things nocturnal. Channel your inner night owl, dress to impress and get ready for a fantastic night at the museum.

You can throw shapes at a silent disco, take a dive into a ball pool and prepare to party with some neon face art.

Miss Ballooniverse will provide balloon art, while you can get creative with the London Craft Club, fashioning a glam night-time Oyster Card holder, a fabric night owl keyring or simply trying some colouring in. All accompanied by top tunes celebrating the best of youth culture from the 50s to the 80s.

Speakers include Daniel Greenwood from the London Wildlife Trust on London's urban animals after dark; and our own Matt Brown talking about unusual nocturnal exploits from London's history and some of the night-time adventures modern Londoners can experience.

There's also a pub quiz about London's nightlife, scavenger hunt and curator-led talks and tours. Plus delicious food and drink, including a one-off night-themed cocktail, called Starry Starry Night.

Night Shift Late takes place on 11 September, between 6.45pm and 10pm at London Transport Museum, Covent Garden Piazza, London, WC2E 7BB. Adult £12; Concessions £10. Lates are for over 18s only.
