Our Youth Takeover Late

Was it a world of perfection, or a twisted reality? Did you join us for our Dystopian Paradise?

The Horniman Youth Panel took over the Museum recently, as part of Kids in Museums takeover day. 

The evening was organised by young people - our Horniman Youth Panel - for young people aged 14-19.

This year’s Youth Late featured DJs, live bands, a rap performance, several dance performances and a theatre production. In total almost fifty performers took part in the evening, all 14-19 years old.

The Horniman Youth Panel created experimental audio pieces for the Museum entrance, and which played alongside the Silent Disco in the Natural History Gallery.

But what did the young people who came think of the takeover? 

All of the acts were so good, I want to perform next year.

The lights looked amazing!

I loved the silent disco, being among all the animals was strangely fun.

The dancers were my highlight, they were so professional.
