Sir John Soane's Museum will be marking the end of their Architectural Drawing exhibition with an after-hours candlelit event.

You'll be able to explore the exhibition, listen to a curator's talk and — best of all — take part in a hands-on drawing workshop whilst sipping a glass of wine. You will even have the opportunity to take some photographs inside the museum — something that is normally forbidden.

The talks will focus on the museum's collection of architectural drawings, which include works by Piranesi, Gandy, Hawksmoor and Sir John Soane himself.
