AfterHours evenings offer interactive encounters with the collections. Each with its own unique theme, AfterHours presents the chance to explore the galleries – with friends or independently – over a drink from our cash bar and in a child free environment.
Expect interesting collaborations, live performances, music, object handling, talks, tours and taster-workshops.
Join us for an intimate evening of unique short films, created by Quechua children living in the Andes, and brought to life by directors of Amantani children’s charity and world-renowned archaeologist and broadcaster, Dr. Jago Cooper (British Museum). Explore Peruvian objects on display in the Museum while sipping a beer or cocktail! Tickets include Peruvian snacks and a drink, and proceeds from the evening will support Amantani’s work in the Andean region.
What to Expect: short films created and presented by indigenous children living in the Andes of Peru; inspiring talks from Dr Jago Cooper and Amantani; delicious Peruvian food thanks to ‘From Peru to You’
Cult Screens: Cinema at the Museum
Saturday 12 & Sunday 13 September, 19.00
Enjoy a late summer weekend of film on the Museums’ lawn. We’ve teamed up with Cult Screens to bring you an 80s classic and a recent hit that complement different aspects of the Museum’s personality. On Saturday we screen Labyrinth (1986), following David Bowie and a host of Jim Henson creations through an eccentric fantasy world. On Sunday, we screen The Imitation Game (2014), a historical thriller exploring the life of master problem-solver, Alan Turing.
