Emerge - new arts and culture "Lates" festival for London
Emerge, an innovative arts and culture festival, will burst onto London’s night -time arts scene on Friday 27 and Saturday 28 September 2019.
Emerge Festival is an entirely new concept for festivals, and for museum and galleries events. Imagined by and aimed at 18-30 Londoners, the Festival will appeal to the capital’s youth by showcasing everything from music and spoken word, to live art installations and theatre in an unrivalled breadth of iconic venues.
Over one weekend in September, Emerge Festival wristband-holders will have access to over 200 events taking place in venues ranging from The Design Museum to The Old Operating Theatre. With one affordable ticket, festival-goers will get to choose from fifty locations and the top pick of London’s emerging talent. It will turn expectations of who museums are for and what culture is upside-down.
Participating venues include: The Natural History Museum, Rich Mix, The Design Museum, Dulwich Picture Gallery, Banqueting House, Handel and Hendrix Museum, Tower Bridge, The Old Operating Theatre, Strawberry Hill, Royal College of Music, National Army Museum, Museum of Brands, Guildhall Art Gallery & London’s Amphitheatre, Apsley House, Benjamin Franklin House, The Cartoon Museum and The Cinema Museum.
Full festival line-up to be announced soon.
