Lates at Somerset House

If you’ve never gotten round to visiting Somerset House or the Courtauld Gallery, the perfect opportunity is presenting itself as the two cultural institutions open their doors after hours for a series of raucous, totally free events this summer.

After all, better Lates than never.

The Morgan Stanley Lates made their debut a couple of years ago, and are back for a third round. Taking place three times a year, they’re artistic, site-wide extravaganzas, with activities inspired by current exhibitions; artist-led workshops; talks and tours with curators; and – in between expanding your cultural and intellectual horizons – a load of street food, pop up bars and DJs to check out.

The next Late this year takes place on 19th June, and it’s free to attend if you’re under 25 (£13 for over 25s). On the roster are live bands, DJs, workshops, street food from Deeny’s, pop up bars, and more.


NOTE: The next Somerset House Lates session takes place on June 19th. Access to the courtyard activities is free, as are exhibitions for under 25s. Registering a spot is recommended – you can do that HERE.
