For a limited time only, a pop-up Night Museum is taking over the Museum of London, with a week of fun and exciting events dedicated to London's dark and illicit secrets.

The final event in the series is a thoroughly fitting end to the Night Museum: The Museum of Last Parties on 4 November is set to be the party to end all parties.

Dress to impress

The night will focus on the history and diversity of London's epic nightclubbing scene. Club closures have hit the news recently, and there will be a chance to air your views on London's losses and hear from those at the heart of the city's nightlife.

Take part in a round table discussion on the future of London clubbing following the closure of city institutions such as Madame JoJo's and Fabric. Hosted by The Night Time Industries Association, this will be an open and interactive talk which gives visitors the chance to pose and answer questions live and direct.

If flapper dresses and clandestine cocktails sound like the recipe for a great night, check out the 1920s themed Candlelight Club. Or perhaps an East End knees up is more your thing, in which case Carradine's Cockney Singalong may appeal: travel back to Victorian London and gather round the piano with a pint of ale in the Deed and Prosper pub — just be sure to brush up on your Cockney rhyming slang beforehand.

Julian Hand will be proviing visuals

Dance away at The Disco Apocalypse, with DJs Wayne and Jack Hemingway, Martin Green and Bishi. With stunning set design by art collective Le Gun, and video and visuals from light show artist Julian Hand, there will be surprises a plenty at this ultimate nightclub.

Anyone who fancies themselves as a bit of a mixer themselves should head to Johnny Trunk's Workshop of Radiophonics, an interactive playroom of tape reel editing and music manipulation.

Of course the city's nightlife is not just about the music — what you wear to paint the town red is a serious consideration. Vintage favourites Beyond Retro and 55 Pages Magazine will be on hand with glad rags to dress up in, and a photo studio to snap the evidence. For crafty types, join in on the customization workshop where you can create an 80s transfer t-shirt to take home.

For those lamenting the lost clubs of London, or partiers looking for a night out with a difference, the Museum of Last Parties should definitely be on your agenda. Dress for a proper night out, and be prepared to talk, learn, and of course, to dance.

The Museum of Last Parties takes place at the Museum of London on 4 November from 7.30pm. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. Check the website for times and locations of the various events throughout the evening.
