LONDON.- London Transport Museum is taking its Museum After Dark events online for people to soak up some culture and help beat the lockdown boredom.

Three free events will take place on selected Thursdays throughout February and March at 19:30 to bring audiences a mix of transport trivia quizzes and opportunities to get crafty and creative at home.

The series will kick off on 11 February with an All the Stations Special hosted by the railway exploring extraordinaire duo Geoff Marshall and Vicki Pipe. Test your transport trivia knowledge – and theirs – in this special London Transport Museum themed edition of their All the Stations quiz. This is a free event and will be streamed on the All The Stations YouTube channel.

On 25 February, Sarah Hyndman, author of Why Fonts Matter and founder of Type Tasting will host a special London Transport Museum edition of her popular Fontastical Games quiz, inspired by cheesy 1970s gameshows. Before getting your game-face on, one of the Museum’s Senior Curators will be talking all things fonts, typefaces and signage from the Capital’s transport history. This is a free ticketed event hosted on Zoom.

On Thursday 11 March get creative making your own work of art using drawing and collage in an interactive workshop guided by expert art tutors from London Drawing. One of the Museum’s Senior Curators will be providing creative inspiration from its world-class collection of more than 2000 original poster designs by artists including Abram Games, Dora M Batty, Edward McKnight Kauffer and Man Ray. No artistic expertise or specialist equipment needed. Grab a pencil, some paper, scissors and glue and London Drawing will guide you through the rest. This is a free ticketed event hosted on Zoom.

The three new digital events are twist on the Museum’s popular weekly After Dark openings which launched in September 2020 following the first national lockdown to give adults the chance to explore the Museum and its collection after a day working from home.

Tickets to reserve your spot at the Fontastical Games and London Drawing After Dark events, can be booked online in advance here: www.ltmuseum.co.uk/after-dark

All the virtual After Dark events are free, but donations to help support London Transport Museum are welcomed.
