Forest Hill’s Horniman museum is going to extremes for its late-night opening on Thursday (May 15).

The museum is taking part in the Museums at Nigh event where for one night only over-18s can enjoy classical guitar on a high-wire, travel in a disco lift or spend a penny in the Cistern Chapel, thanks to satirical artists.

As well as the chance to make discoveries among the eclectic collections, the Horniman’s Extremes Late features:

• Extremely hot, live dance music from Zimbabwe, courtesy of quartet Harare

• An extremely rude satirical art show from Modern Toss, including their special Portrait Booth, the Periodic Table of Swearing, and the Cistern Chapel – a selection of their classic works in the Horniman toilets

• An extremely high classical guitar and movement performance from Dizzy O’Dare, perched on a tightwire in the Horniman’s sunken garden

• And the extremely cool disco lift – the 30-second party of a lifetime.

The museum’s Extremes exhibition will also be available as well as film screenings and storytelling to transport visitors to depths of the sea or the dark side of the moon.

Tickets cost £5 at
