Latest Event in London

This year's installations take the theme of Carnaby Christmas Carnival; with 30 neon coconut trees, 27 giant party poppers, 8 incredible tropical flowers, 8 feathery parrots, 2 colourful toucans, 2 neon flamingos and 1 pair of parkeets, signifying the release of a pair of parakeets by legend Jimi Hendrix in the 60s on Carnaby Street.

"It happens every year. London sets aside the Sunday and Monday encompassing their 'bank holiday' on Monday for one of the world's largest street carnivals; Notting Hill Carnival. Each year, close to one million people attend this two-day celebration of Caribbean heritage on the streets of Notting Hill. Celebrations include costume-clad Caribbean's dancing to traditional reggae, meringue, calypso, rumba, and zouk music, and street vendors selling foods like seasoned jerk chicken, callaloo, and traditional goat stew. Many Caribbean foods have roots from cuisines of Europe, America, China, and Africa.

The Caribbean is a favorite vacation destination and comprises many islands that are all part of a huge archipelago in the Caribbean Sea. These tropical, beautiful islands were the contention of many European countries who each wanted ownership of a part of this gorgeous region. The English acquired St. Kiss, Barbados, Antigua, and other islands in the 17th century. It's common for many peoples of the Caribbean islands to reside in England."

"The Ultimate Brompton Racing Event"

The Brompton World Championship is our flagship Brompton only racing event. With qualifying heats held in 15 countries and a final in the UK. The event has been running for 10 years and is held in cities around the world. Riders must follow the strict dress code which reflects the heritage of the event.



An exploration of dreams, the unconscious and an imaginary world between sleep and wakefulness, Dream On looks at our relationship to objects and the power of the inanimate. This exhibition plays with the notion that objects come to life when we are not looking, much like our dreams as we fall asleep.

Christie Brown’s figurative ceramic installation ‘Ludus Est’ references dolls and toys in the collection and her own childhood memories. In a series of dream-like tableaux we are taken on a narrative journey in which two dolls explore the museum after hours.

Mirroring Christie Brown’s practice we have worked with students of CAMHS Campus School Springfield Hospital, creating a surreal sculptural fantasy of what the museum’s liberated inhabitants might get up to when everyone has gone home.

Photographer Madeleine Waller and artist Katherine Tulloh have worked with Year 5 pupils from Lauriston Primary School, Hackney. They have retold, staged and photographed scenes to create images which illustrate their own remembered dreams.


"The gallery examines the fundamental role mathematicians, their tools and ideas have played in building the modern world. From war and peace to life, death, money, trade and beauty, the objects on display reveal how mathematics connects to every aspect of our lives.

Students will uncover powerful stories about the work of mathematicians in the broadest sense, from salespeople to sailors, aircraft engineers to bankers, and gamblers to garden designers. These stories span 400 years of human ingenuity, from the renaissance to the present day, with objects ranging from intriguing hand-held mathematical instruments to a 1929 experimental aircraft.

The curved overhead structure and layout of the gallery represents airflow around the Handley Page aircraft suspended at its centre. The design—by Zaha Hadid Architects—was driven by equations of airflow used in the aviation industry, which are still an important area of mathematical research. "

Home to the largest lights installation in the capital, Regent Street is best known for its awe-inspiring ‘The Spirit of Christmas’ lights. These stunning suspended spirits were inspired by Regent Street’s very first Christmas lights, which were the first ever central London Christmas lights in 1954.

A star-studded switch-on show is ready to go live on the 15th November, with acts now announced.
