About the Show Less...

The Salon Project recreates the exclusive meetings at the heart of French society‘s golden age, in this interactiveperiod costumed night of entertainment. Read More >

Your evening begins in the Barbican dressing rooms, where you will be costumed in full period evening dress before emerging into a mirrored impression of a 19th-century Parisian salon.

As you mingle with guests, pioneers in their fields will provoke discussion, speaking on subjects at the vanguard of 21st-century thought: science, politics, technology and the arts.

The Salon Project recreates the exclusive meetings at the heart of what was French society‘s golden age – an era of change, excess and inquiry. Relive its splendour, contrast it with the present, and imagine what the future will hold in this beautifully crafted night of fashion and conversation.

Age guidance 16+ (contains nudity)

Audience members will be contacted in advance for measurements so a bespoke period costume can be created for them
