Sir John Soane's Museum, 13 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London WC2A 3BP

Robert Seatter | Literary Late at Sir John Soane's Museum

Join us for a candlelit evening celebrating all things literary with pop-up poetry readings, book displays, and more.  Sir John Soane was an avid book collector and had a vast personal collection of works which he kept at his home and studio in Lincoln Inn Fields. The Archivist and Head of Library Services will present a display of some of Soane’s favourite books, rarely on show to the public, in the Museum's elegant Drawing Rooms. With a glass of prosecco in hand, you can also enjoy pop-up readings by Robert Seatter, Head of History at the BBC, from his latest collection, his fourth for Seren,  The House of Everything: Poems Inspired by Sir John Soane’s Museum (Seren 2021) , in the very spaces these poems were first imagined. Admission includes a glass of wine or prosecco in the Library-Dining Room, where Soane would have spent many evenings reading by the fireplace surrounded by his book collection.  Tickets cost £25 and are available for arrival at either 18:00, 18:30, 19:30 or 20:00.
