Emerge Festival 2019

The London Lates Festival 27th-28th September 2019

What's On

Emerge is an exciting festival of art,music, and experiences in the evening on 27th and 28th September 2019, in cultural venues across London. Aimed in particular at young adults (the young-at-heart are equally welcome) it will be an extravaganza of entertainment for an inclusive price that gives admission to all venues. Around London, museums and cultural institutions will open their doors until late and put on events and shows that you wouldn't normally expect to see.

Emerge Festival at London Canal Museum

Slow time will be an immersive sound installation by award-winning sound artist Tom White that reimagines the fabulous Victorian building that now houses the London Canal Museum.

This soundscape will bring the hidden sounds of ice melting and forming along with the sounds of locks and boats, and material drawn from the museum's collection of oral history recordings, to your enchanted ears, filling the historic environment with a rich sonic landscape.

You'll move around the spaces to explore how sounds react with the architecture and the accoustic properties of ice and water will come together to create an experience not to be missed.

Taking inspiration from the ice well’s atmospherically lit cavernous space, the rest of the museum swill be subtly lit to create an amazing atmosphere that will delight the eyes as well as the ears, whilst stimulating the imagination through listening, perhaps even feeling....

London Canal Museum's soundscape experience will be open both nights and we are aiming to be the best show in town!

A museum experience like no other.

A cash bar will be available so visitors will be able to linger and enjoy a drink before dashing off to see another of the Emerge attractions
