Soak up the convivial fug of a specially reconstructed coffeehouse at a dangerously caffeinated event at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich as part of their dazzling Ships, Clocks and Stars exhibition.

‘The Virtue of Coffee’ takes place at 6.30pm on Thursday 23rd October. Tickets are £12 and this including admission to the exhibition on longitude itself. Book tickets here

Sip the ‘soot-coloured ninny broth’ that powered the search for Longitude with London historian and director of Unreal City Audio Dr Matthew Green; make a molly spoon with Mother Clapp (replete with glamorous beard) and talk satire and society with curator Dr Katy Barrett.

The night will be scored by the Frolick, playing high baroque music as it would have been experienced in the days of Dr Johnson.

The night promises to be a multi-sensory feast. Do join us.
