Come With Us To The Opening Of Estuary At Museum Of London Docklands

If you read our features on Tilbury Fort and the abandoned Maunsell sea forts, you’ll have twigged that we are media partner to the forthcoming exhibition, Estuary, at Museum of London Docklands.

This contemporary art exhibition brings together the work of 12 artists who have been inspired by the outer limits of the Thames. Its opening also coincides with the Museum of London Docklands’ tenth birthday. So there’s plenty to celebrate – huzzah!

The exhibition opens on Thursday 16 May with a private view. As media partner, we’ve secured tickets to this exclusive party for you, dear readers. Come along and get a first look at the Thames inspired art, say happy birthday to the Museum and hear from some of its key people and – natch, the clincher – mingle with team Londonist over a few drinks.

We have 20 pairs of tickets to give away. Simply enter your name and email address in the form below and we’ll pick 20 names out of the virtual hat on Monday 13 May, after midday, and notify you.


If you can’t make the opening night, then bag a ticket to the Cockles and Mussels late, on Saturday 18 May. The evening opening offers an opportunity to explore the exhibition, learn to shuck oysters, sing sea shanties, dance to music curated by Mercury nominated Sam Lee and the Nest Collective abd take part in a Londonist pub quiz (yet again, not in a pub!) Tickets £7, book now.
