Postmodernism, power-dressing and pac-man; the Soane celebrates all things 80s with this late-night exhibition viewing. The era that brought us some of our most outlandish urban architecture also witnessed audacious fashion trends, accelerated technological innovation and experimental counter-culture in music, art and film. To celebrate the launch of our new exhibition, The Return of the Past: Postmodernism in British Architecture, the Museum is eulogising the decade that gave birth to this controversial architectural movement. Visit the historic house after-hours for a late night viewing of the exhibition in an 80s ambience of synth, shoulder pads and slogans. Ticket holders will gain special after-hours access to the museum collection, including entry to The Return of the Past exhibition. Tickets are available for arrival at either 18:00, 18:30, 19:00 or 19:30. Drinks are not included in ticket price. We kindly request that guests vacate the museum one and a half hours after their ticketed arrival time.
