Experience the RA after dark for themed, immersive nights of creativity, ideas and entertainment, inspired by the exhibitions.

In collaboration with Imogen Willetts, Special Events Creative Programmer at the RA, and Abby and Alice, installation dream team, we write, produce and direct the immersive elements of an RA Late, breathing life into the history of the artists and the themes of their art. We’ve directed everything from a 1940s cocktail party with Peggy Guggenheim, to theatrical rehearsals with Vsevolod Meyerhold, from heated debates in a 1920s communist workers’ club, to filming on a 1930s Hollywood Land studios lot. We've invited audience members to the Heaven - and Hell - in Milton's Paradise Lost, and staged a 1970s Manhattan Happening. This March we invited you to become 17th Century royalty for an evening and attend a court masque in the presence of Charles I.
