Lates at the London Transport Museum

A reader writes to recommend the London Transport Museum's Lates programme. The Museum itself gives a great insight into the history of London's transport system from horse-drawn buses to the modern underground, but your author was largely ignorant of the Lates events until recently. Perhaps this can be put down to the lengthy refurbishment which closed the Museum from 2005-7.

As with almost all Museums nowadays, the Lates take place on Friday nights. They are fairly regular and tickets cost £8, which is the usual entry fee. For this you get the run of most of the museum, as well as the chance of some live music, DJs, film and other events based around the evening's theme between 6.30pm and 9pm.

To museum geeks like your author this sounds fun, and there is also a well stocked bar to help the evening go a bit smoother for those whose passion for transport is only fleeting. So why not head down to the website at http://www.ltmuseum.co.uk/whatson/126.aspx to see what is in store for the next one.

Many thanks to David Singleton who passed on this idea. Much appreciated. If you have any ideas you think could be included here please do send them on. If nothing else, you will help save someone from the pains of writers block!
