SPECIAL EVENTS

January Late
Friday 31 January from 6pm

We have partnered up with travel platform Culture Trip to host a very special January Late celebrating the history and mystery of Tutankhamun and the British Egyptologist Howard Carter

 

With Culture Trip’s Cassam Looch (Beyond Hollywood) as MC and tunes from Soho Radio, this pub quiz with a twist will take you on a fun adventure through Egypt old and new.

 

Team up with friends or test your solo skills for the chance to win your own ‘treasures’.

 

To take part in the quiz you need to have a Culture Trip: Night Quiz ticket. The ticket includes access to the exhibition.

Nefertiti & Me
Kate Daudy and Emma O’Byrne in discussion

‘It Wasn’t That At All’, 2nd floor Saatchi Gallery

 

Join Kate Daudy and acclaimed make-up artist Emma O’Byrne in tracing notions of beauty from ancient Egypt to contemporary fashion.

This talk is free to attend for all visitors with an exhibition ticket valid while the talk is taking place. 

Relaxed Session
Monday 24 February, 5.30pm

 

The relaxed session has been programmed for anyone who might benefit from visiting the exhibition at a quieter time when you’ll have the opportunity to explore the artefacts in a calm environment.

 

Attendee numbers will be reduced, as will sound levels and there will be a quiet space available away from the exhibition which you are welcome to utilise. Ear defenders will also be available to borrow.

 

We welcome families and are sensitive to the needs of visitors with autistic spectrum disorder or other communication and sensory conditions – exhibition staff are always friendly, aware and happy to help.
