Night ShiftOpening on the first weekend of what was meant to be the first weekend of the night tube - before numerous strikes led to it being postponed - Night Shift, a new exhibition exploring the nocturnal side of transport at the London Transport Museum, celebrates the possibility of this new era in London Underground travel. The 24 hour nature of London nightlife is shown in posters advertising the theatres, bars and cinemas of the city, through recognition of the night shift workers, and the shelter the Tube provided during the Second World War. The exhibition is part of 'London by Design', an 18 month programme which includes three major exhibitions, numerous events, and a tie-in with designjunction, all in celebration of London transport's 150-year design legacy.

 

About London Transport Museum

After a two-year, £22 million refurbishment the London Transport Museum reopened on 22 November 2007 revealing more exhibition space than before. The museum travels back through the 200-year history of public transport, arranged according to several themes: London Transport's famous design heritage, the poster collection, public transport during both World Wars and plans for the capital's development in the twenty-first century.
