The Lost Lectures

Barn Dance

After two and a half years in the hypothetical hinterlands, it gives us unparalleled pleasure to announce our return to the London scene, for a one-off, magical event. Since our last encounter, we’ve seen a seismic shift in our collective reality, so it feels all the more meaningful to coalesce and re-connect in clandestine comfort around ideas shaping our world.

On Friday 27th April we welcome you to the ‘great barn’, in the heart of central London, where you’ll be treated to an mesmeric mix of world-class talks and performances, enjoyed from the comfort of your very own hay bale. There will be an array of foody and drinky delights available throughout the evening. The night will end with a raucous hoedown, led by the finest musicians in the business, so bring your dancing shoes and join us for a long-overdue roll in the hay!

Barn doors open at 7pm  * please swing them closed again on your way out.

Talks begin promptly at 7.30 and end around 10.30, music and dancing will continue through to the early hours (2am).

Tickets are priced at £30 each and can be found below.

Food will be available from some of London’s finest street food vendors with Lords of Poké and BBQ Dreamz both representing. Drinks will be available all night long from the Lost Bar.

Location will be revealed only to ticket holders a few days before the event.

See you soon Lostlings…
