Location

We’ll be in Gallery 1. When you enter Wellcome Collection, it’s on the left on level 0.

Queuing likely

Spaces are limited and we recommend arriving early as these events are particularly likely to be busy. If we’re full, we will ask you to queue outside the gallery to avoid overcrowding in the exhibition space. Only people in the exhibition space will be able to attend the event. If queuing is not accessible for you, please speak to a member of staff. If you have any access requests or requirements, email us at access@wellcomecollection.org or call 020 7611 2222.
