The Lost Lectures


The Lost Lectures returns to LONDON with a distinctly tribal feel to proceedings. Having hacked our way through the urban jungle, we chanced upon a forgotten temple, shrouded in smoky secrecy, that until now, has remained far beyond the reach of even the most clandestine of cultural connoisseurs. And so we named it…


On November 5th and 6th 2015, we open the doors of the temple and welcome you into a vast interior, steeped in flame, ritual and tribal intrigue. The Lost temple will be a living art installation, using light, shadow and shape to transport audiences deep into a World of ideas, inspiration and wonderment.

There will be food courtesy of Street Feast alumni, indoor and outdoor bars open all eve with mulled wine flowing aplenty, marshmallow roasting, explosive demos courtesy of our pyrotechnician in residence, Dr Hal Sosabowski and some as yet unannounced additions to the lineup. The final batch of keys have been unearthed, and are available below. They will guarantee your safe passage…

The Temple beckons, Lostlings
