7-8 December 2019
Skate under the moonlight at Somerset House this winter. To co-incide with their new exhibition, 24/7 that explores our non-stop culture, the ice rink will be open all night for the first time. Glide around beneath the twinkling Christmas tree stopping in at the bar for a drink or Fortnums Lodge for some food, both of which will stay open until 2am. The exhibition will also be open all night long; wander through the immersive installations that include Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg’s orchestration of a machine-generated dawn chorus that highlights the impact of light pollution on bird populations, a space to connect with listeners around the world as you hum the chorus of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, and a meditative isolation chamber which you can climb inside. On 7 December one ticket gets you access to skating (usually £17) and the exhibition (usually £14) all for £8. A steal.
