The Lost Lectures

THE ELECTROGRAPH

We are taking over an old sub-station building and going completely ‘off-grid’ to bring you the best of culture and subculture in the city, with world-class speakers and performers sparking new connections within London’s electrical infrastructure.

Ladies and gentlemen, we proudly present ‘The Electrograph’ – London’s most illuminating culture club and playground for the podcast generation, where we shall immerse all our patrons in an fantastical world of colour, light, ideas and imagination.

Each night will host 4 different speakers and musical performances across an eclectic range of topics, within an interactive playground of participatory delights, responsive set design, clandestine cocktails and award winning culinary concoctions.

Single Access is priced at £25 per person + booking fee.

Electric Access (Group ticket 4 + people) is priced at £17.50 per person + booking fee.

Our aim is to encourage patrons to bring newbees, recharge forgotten friendships and celebrate the ideas shaping our world in the warm neon glow of great company and friends.

Location will be announced to ticket holders via email, three days before the event. The location is in Zone 2, along the Piccadilly Line and is less that half an hour door to door from Eros (Piccadilly Circus).

      Let the sparks fly. The Lost Folk
