Science Museum Lates
We and a couple of friends decided to check out October's Science Museum Lates, which happened to coincide with Halloween. After braving the freezing October evening and large queues (who would know science would be so popular?), we got in all excited. In addition to the normal Science Museum stuffs, the day also hosted special science of alcohol events and lectures where visitors learned about this history of gin, sake tasting and brewing your own ginger beer.
After getting all educational, we headed down to the Exploring Space room on the ground floor, where the famous Science Museum silent disco is held (under a Black Arrow launch rocket no less!). Two DJs blast out tunes through wireless headsets, which you can choose from. Here we danced badly under the judging stares of none dancing onlookers, who are probably wondering "what the fuck is going on here".
For a first visit to the Lates, we found that there were plenty of fun things to do. We're definitely going to make this a monthly thing. Science Museum Lates is free and occurs on the last Wednesday of each month (except December, when it is way too cold anyway).
