28 February: Night on the Tiles

Party like it’s 1999 and you’re dancing in a disused Underground station. Explore London’s rich nightlife history through the ages, from Victorian music halls and night clubs, to subcultures which have influenced London and the world. Visit our immersive exhibition Hidden London, giving you a taste of what lies beneath the streets, in the secret and abandoned tunnels and stations of London. Glam up and accessorize in our creative workshops and dance to our resident DJ’s London party tunes.

  • Palaces of Pleasure – Lee Jackson on Victorian nightclubs and mass entertainment
  • Sounds like London – Lloyd Bradley on 100 years of Black British music
