The London Lates Shaking Up the Capital This Autumn

The London Lates Shaking Up the Capital This Autumn

Love This? Save and Share!

Ready to party it up in the capital? To celebrate the return of London’s nightlife, London Lates will be introducing a new series of events that are sure to make up for the last 18 months – let’s be real, we’re all ready to forget those.

These events are part of the Mayor of London’s latest efforts in the ‘Let’s Do London’ campaign, which aims to get the public out and about again enjoying the city.  Whether you want to party, appreciate art, or scoff your face with a foodie feast, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Popular DJs, musicians, actors, and artists will be coming together to bring a number of exciting experiences to what looks to be a stellar autumn in the capital.

What’s On During the London Lates Series?

Amongst a fair few others, the after-dark events include Carnaby Lates at the Museum of Youth Culture, Frieze at West End Night, Tate Modern Late, and Lates at the Saatchi Gallery. 

Trafalgar Square Night

The African Art Fair will also be returning to Somerset House for a 9th year from 14-17th October, with a late-night opening on the 16th. 

After the Mayor’s ‘Back to the Big Screen’ initiative was a huge success, cinemas are, once again, hosting events – and first up are midnight screenings of ‘No Time to Die’ across the capital on September 30th. Join Bond… James Bond for a late-night adventure in the capital as he makes his highly-anticipated return to our screens.

From November, the Science Museum will be opening up its doors after-hours for adults-only evenings filled with cutting-edge science, talkaoke, and a wildly fun silent disco. Ready to don a headset and dance your way around the museum? Of course, you are.

Opera Makes a Comeback

In one of the most exciting events throughout autumn, the Royal Opera House will be celebrating queer club culture and the beauty of the stage on November 14th. You’ll be able to dive right into the ballet and opera world and see the art through a different lens.

And the opera-themed fun doesn’t end there… another theatrical event can be found at London’s hottest nightclub, Fabric. 

The club will be returning on December 2nd with an exciting collaboration between its famed DJ’s and the ENO’s award-winning singers as the London Coliseum presents: One Night at the Opera. 

A Night at the Museum – Kids’ Edition 

There’s plenty for the little ones to get involved with, too. Get ready for the ultimate sleepover with the Natural History Museum’s Dino Snores for Kids

Spend the evening creeping around the museum by torchlight and getting involved with creative workshops, before settling down to snooze in the ACTUAL museum. A dream come true.
