The House Warming Party at the Tate

To honour the rehang of the Tate Britain’s collection in chronological order, Salon London will take a lateral look at ‘Time’. 

In the brand new Grand Saloon, theoretical physicist David Tong will deal with the first 13.8ish billion years of time explaining the period millionth of seconds after the big bang until things get tricky around 1740.

Food historian Leonie Sooke will take us on a taste safari through the 18th and 19th centuries via the fortunes of sugar, including of course Henry Tate, the builder of the Gallery.

We will conclude our Salon at Tate Britain with musician and leading vocal coach Juliet Russell who will bring us bang up to the moment through the distinctive musical sounds of modern and post modern times.
