Fanciful Figures turns visitors’ attention to ‘staffage’, the small human and animal figures in architectural drawings, which first appeared in the late seventeenth century in Britain. The exhibition will explore their historical significance, as well showcasing work by architectural practices leading the field in the area of staffage today.

They are also looking forward to their upcoming monthly Soane Lates. These candlelit evenings offer visitors the chance to delve deeper into the stories and design of the Museum whilst enjoying a complimentary drink in the Library-Dining Room, where Sir John Soane would have entertained his own esteemed guests.
